Thanks to its Catholic roots, Worth School is well known for effectively imparting strong values around collective responsiblity, kindness and honesty - and heaven knows, we could do with young adults with these values right now.
Worth School has a very strong music, drama and art. About 50% of pupils learn instruments. The school has several excellent choirs, a good orchestra and an active and competitive modern bands circuit. The school's well-equipped theatre sees at least three major productions a year. The new arts department is beautiful and, judging from our last visit in January, produces some real talent!

The close proximity to London makes Worth School a popular choice with wealthy Londoners. It has been known that pupils on occasion flaunt their wealth at school.
