Urspring is an independent school supported by Urspring School Foundation. Since it was established in 1930, Urspring has been run as a progressive school which contributes to supporting the whole of a child’s character through a holistic upbringing and the acquisition of comprehensive skills. The small classes and courses allow pupils to be challenged and supported through differentiated teaching.


Urspring School provides primary education for junior-level pupils (Classes 3 and 4) and grammar school education for all secondary levels (Classes 5 to 12), with an additional year as an option. From September 2015, Urspring also offers a co-opted Institute of Languages.
