What does it mean to be an HMC school?

HMC (the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference) is an association of Heads of the world’s leading independent schools.

HMC schools are individual and distinctive, offering parents a rich variety of options when choosing the right education for their child. At the heart of every HMC school is a commitment to the benefits of an holistic educational experience: academic excellence coupled with a strong emphasis on pastoral care and exceptional co-curricular opportunities.

HMC exists to serve and support its members, to represent their views and to exemplify excellence in education.
