Corydon Lowde, Headmaster of Box Hill School, has announced the school will be joining the list of distinguished schools whose full membership of HMC (Headmasters and Headmistresses Conference) is a kite mark of global quality.

Box Hill HMC

There are fewer than 300 HMC schools out of some 2000 private schools in the UK. HMC’s independent schools are individual and distinctive, offering parents a rich variety of options when choosing the right education for their child. But, at the heart of every HMC school is a commitment to the benefits of a holistic educational experience: academic excellence coupled with a strong emphasis on pastoral care and exceptional co-curricular opportunities. Box Hill School’s offer of a holistic, relationship-driven education means an equal emphasis on all aspects of learning, including 10-15 hours of activities per week. These include all major sports, high ropes, stage make up, robotics, Podcast Club, and Mountain Biking.

As a boarding school, bringing together children from over 30 countries, Box Hill promotes a common understanding of global citizenship and our shared humanity. Inspectors noted that “Pupils are well-behaved and considerate towards one another. They have a highly developed sense of right and wrong and readily take responsibility for their own behaviour informed by the Round Square IDEALS”.

Headmaster Cory Lowde comments; “I am thrilled that the extraordinary work of the last several years have been recognised in this way. We do not stand still. We go from strength to strength and I look forward to what this opportunity means for all concerned”.
