Achievements

Pupil participation in and commitment to co-curricular activities often lead to successful employment progression and achievement in sports, music and arts.

HMC's schools are proud to have educated well known and successful poets, artists, musicians, explorers and playwrights as well as professional athletes and Olympians.

Pupils in HMC schools play on average between 5 and 6 hours of sport and games a week in over 40 different sports - double the amount of sport compared with pupils in state schools. On average, each HMC school has 41 pupils representing their county and 8 pupils representing their country.

Just 7% of the English population are educated privately, but a third of the UK's medals at the Rio 2016 Olympics went to pupils from independent schools and a whopping 36 of those medals were won by former HMC school students. Furthermore, a third of county cricketers come from independent schools the majority of whom were educated in HMC independent schools.
