Our Heritage

Gabbitas has been involved with Independent Education for over 145 years.

We have helped with the education of the British royal family, crowned heads of Europe, celebrities from all walks of life as well as ordinary families who wish to give the best possible education to their children. Amongst its tutors there have been many famous authors and composers such as Evelyn Waugh and Edward Elgar plus many other outstanding figures in the arts and sciences.

Founded by Mr Gabbitas in 1873, today we are part of the Shaw Trust, a leading national charity that creates brighter futures for people through work, training and education.
