Overview

Tonbridge School was founded in 1553 by Sir Andrew Judde, under Letters Patent of King Edward VI. The Charter ordained that the Governors of the school after the death of the Founder were to be the Worshipful Company of Skinners, one of the oldest City Livery Companies. Sir Andrew, himself a distinguished member of this Company, left property in the City of London and in the parish of St Pancras as an endowment for the school. The income from these estates is at the disposal of the Governors for the general benefit of the School. The memory of Sir Andrew Judde and other benefactors is honoured in an annual Commemoration Service, held on Skinners' Day at the end of the Summer Term.The Senior Management Team (SMT) is the group responsible to the governors for the management of Tonbridge School. It is chaired and led by the Headmaster. In addition, it comprises the Second Master, Director of Studies, Director of Teaching and Learning, Bursar, Director of Admissions, Upper Masterand Foundation Director.Tonbridge has two main intakes; at the age of 13 (Year 9) we have places for 144 boys, and at the age of 16 (Year12) we have up to an additional 20 available. We also take up to 6 boarding boys at the beginning of Year 10.The school occupies an extensive site of about 150 acres on the northern edge of the town of Tonbridge, and is largely self-contained within that site. Since its foundation the school has been rebuilt twice on the original site. The main buildings of the present school date from the second half of the nineteenth century, a time in which the school grew considerably in size and importance. There has been much further building in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
