Welcome to Hockerill Anglo-European College. We passionately believe that every student deserves the opportunity to be the best they can be and that our school gives them that opportunity.

We are a state co-educational day and boarding school for students aged 11 to 18 and offer our students a dynamic, vibrant and exciting learning environment where development of the whole student is our priority. The College offers a rigorous and broad curriculum, and is proud to be one of the largest state schools offering the prestigious International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma programmes.

With a twin focus on the two specialisms of Languages and Music, Hockerill offers a truly distinct setting for a world-class education. Located in beautiful grounds on the edge of Bishop’s Stortford the school is in close proximity to London and the South East of England and accepts applications for boarding and day places from students with a current UK passport or the right to residency in the UK.
