Tonbridge is a school for the 21st century

We have an enviable reputation for the quality and breadth of the education we offer our boys. We are rightly proud of our record for academic excellence but we need to constantly innovate and develop new and better teaching methods: to push the boundaries of learning, and ask more of ourselves and the boys.

Tonbridge School is at an exciting stage in its long history and we have very ambitious plans to make sure that we continue to deliver a world-class education in the future. It is a long-term plan and at its heart is our commitment to excellence, for our boys and for the wider community to which they belong. We hope that you, along with many other members of the Tonbridge School community, will want to be involved in the fulfilment of our ambitions.


Our aim is that this next phase of development will benefit every boy at the School. Many of the projects will have a wider role in creating excellence for others outside of the immediate school community through our outreach and partnership activity.

Our campaign focus


Creating a world-class educational environment by delivering the most ambitious transformation of the school campus since the 1860s, which will significantly improve the boys’ experiences in collaborative learning and independent study.

As many will know, Tonbridge is going through its biggest development programme since the 19th Century. Following the launch of the Excellence for All campaign, we have made tremendous progress transforming the School campus, improving the educational experience for all boys, and offering more bursaries to families who would otherwise have been unable to consider a Tonbridge education.
