The Earls is a genuinely ancient institution. Almost uniquely among non-selective schools we are 360 years old. Founded in 1652, we are an institution with a strong blend of the best of tradition and the best of the new. The Governors chose to become an Academy in January 2012, this does not change our admission arrangements or the service we offer the community. Whatever outer form the school designation takes we will hold to the tradition encapsulated in the school motto: "Ut filii lucis fiatis", almost literally "to become the children of light", that’s what we want for our students: to become enlightened.
