Welcome to the Blundell’s International web-pages. Throughout its 400 year history Blundell’s has provided for pupils from overseas. Improvements in travel and communication over the last two decades has produced a wider range of International students than in the past and they make up about 10% of the total number of 600.

One of our greatest Old Blundellian benefactors, Sir Christopher Ondaatje OC, CBE, when opening the magnificently appointed Ondaatje Theatre, declared his wish that the building should symbolise international understanding and accord. We feel we are offering a truly international education whilst restricting numbers of students from each country so that the ethos of an English boarding school is enriched rather than diluted. Friendships quickly spring up between English and International students at Blundell’s, leading to greater understanding for all.
