Padworth College is a friendly, co-educational senior school at Padworth, between Burghfield Common and Tadley in the English county of Berkshire. The school was established in 1963 by an Oxford university don-Peter Fison-who aimed to bring international style tutorial teaching methods to school level education. Originally a sixth form boarding house school for girls, Padworth College became co-educational in 2005 and now accepts students between ages thirteen and nineteen from the local area and from all over the world. The Principal, Chris Randell, joined the College in 2013 and took over as Principal in September 2018 upon John Aguilar's retirement. The school celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2013.
The college is based in Padworth House, the local manor house and 18th century home of the military Darby-Griffith family, including Major-General Matthew Chitty Darby-Griffith. In the 1820s, it was rented to Thomas Bacon, after he had sold the Plymouth Ironworks in Wales, inherited from his father. He later moved to Donnington Castle House.
