British public boarding school

Christ's Hospital is a public school (English independent boarding school for pupils aged 11–18) with a Royal Charter located to the south of Horsham in West Sussex. The school was founded in 1552 and received its first Royal Charter in 1553. Since its establishment, Christ's Hospital has been a charity school, with a core aim to offer children from humble backgrounds the chance of a better education.

Christ's Hospital is unusual among British independent schools in that the majority of the students receive bursaries. This stems from its founding charter as a charitable school. School fees are paid on a means-tested basis, with substantial subsidies paid by the school or their benefactors, so that pupils from all walks of life are able to have private education that would otherwise be beyond the means of their parents.

Sexual abuse

Sexual abuse of pupils from 1969 to 2001[1] led to six former teachers being convicted of offences after more than 20 former students made complaints to the police in 2016.[2][3] The convicted former teachers were sentenced to prison terms of up to 17 years.[1]
