School description

Christ's Hospital School was founded in London in 1552. Initially, by the order of King Edward IV, it was a shelter for the care of children from poor families (and it was intended only for girls): in the future, when transformed into a boarding school, the institution managed to stay a male school and only then came to a joint type of training in 1985. In September 2011, the school opened a department for day students (without residence), but the vast majority of students (830 of 850 people) still prefer to study and live within the walls of the campus.

Speaking of famous school graduates, the following names can be noted:

In total, the school now has about 850 students (boys equally and girls) - both boarders and day students. Approximately 50 students represent foreign countries (many children from Hong Kong and Germany). Classes for classes are formed very small: on the Sixth Form no more than 10 people, in the middle classes no more than 20.
