Buckswood School is an independent school for boys and girls that was founded in 1933.

Originally the school was situated in Uckfield and known as Buckswood Grange School. In 2000, it re-located to the village of Guestling between the towns of Ashford and Hastings in East Sussex.


Buckswood School currently boards 250 students from nearly fifty different countries, plus 200 local day pupils. Fees are roughly 11,000 pounds sterling per annum for day pupils and 25,000 pounds sterling per annum for boarders. Bursaries and scholarships are available to provide between a 10% and 30% discount for UK pupils.

Facilities offered on campus include an indoor swimming pool, a specialist football academy, riding stables, a dance academy, a basketball court, tennis courts and a performing arts centre.

Academically Buckswood offers GCSE and A Level programmes plus full EFL tuition for all overseas students. Buckswood School also offers the IB diploma.
