LAMDA classes are also offered. We have regular concerts and performances throughout the year.

Pastoral Care

Sunningdale is like a family. Boys at the school receive an unrivaled level of individual attention and support. Every boy has a personal tutor who they see every day, although all members of staff are involved in nurturing the boys, making sure that they are happy and helping them to make the most of their time at school. Kindness is at the heart of everything we do.
