INFORMATION & FAQS
Uppingham Summer School courses all take place at Uppingham School, one of the UK’s leading independent schools. Founded in 1584 the school is set in 120 acres of rolling Rutland countryside in the picturesque and historic market town of Uppingham. The school has a state of the art music school and drama studio, an inspirational design and technology building designed by Piers Gough (The Leonardo Centre), an excellent sports centre with top of the range facilities and a brand new Science Centre, opened in September 2014 . Full use is made of these for holiday courses.
Uppingham is situated in the heart of the country and is easily accessible from the A1, M1 and A14. Kettering and Peterborough train stations are close by and it is only 1 hour from Birmingham airport or 2 hours from Heathrow airport.
Residential accommodation is provided in the school’s comfortable and spacious boarding houses and consists of a combination of shared rooms for younger children and single rooms for older children and adults. A delicious range of meals are prepared by our own chefs and served in each house dining room. For residential students, the school’s superb sports facilities, theatre and art & design centre provide plenty of opportunity for fun during free time. However, there is always a comfortable common room with television available for any students who might just want to relax after a busy day!
