The Wildernesse School in Sevenoaks, Kent, England was a single sex High School for boys aged eleven to nineteen. It had Specialist School status for Mathematics and Computing. Other than the English motto taken from a letter to Sir Philip Sidney from his father, the school had a Latin motto: Non Nobis Solum (English: Not for ourselves alone).

Footballer John Salako is a former pupil, as are actor Jerome Flynn, poet Murray Lachlan Young and choreographer Anton du Beke

The school closed in July 2010, becoming part of the Knole Academy at the start of the autumn term in September 2010.[1]


When Knole Academy opened it is the merge of the Wildernesse School and the Bradbourne School. 2. http://www.education.gov.uk/
