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, famous authors and composers such as Evelyn Waugh, Stephen Fry and Edward Elgar and 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.
