The Cottesmore team is hugely excited and extremely proud to have been included in the “The Spear’s Index 2024: The world’s 100 leading private schools”. 

This is what the Spear’s team say: 

“The index is a valuable resource for those advising family offices, or HNW individuals directly, as well as those seeking insights into leading schools when working overseas, on diplomatic postings, or when investing in emerging markets (particularly for those seeking to acquire, or establish, leading schools internationally).

The Spear’s Review of Cottesmore School

A caring and busy community, Cottesmore School offers ‘traditional values in a modern world’. It recently hosted an AI conference that was joined online by schools around the globe. In the spirit of the family ethos of the school, head Tom Rogerson is the third member of his family to take the role. 

One of the most beautiful schools in England, the main building was purpose built in the Sussex countryside as a boarding school in 1894.

Academic results are excellent, and children leave Cottesmore with a positive attitude, thoroughly prepared for the next stage of their education.
