Based at the foot of the South Downs just outside of Eastbourne, we are a school that prides itself on our excellent reputation and school diversity. We believe in working together as a school community to achieve the best results. Both our pupils and staff are encouraged and inspired to achieve their best potential.

We endeavour to provide an enjoyable, enriched educational experience that is both meaningful and relevant to every child and to develop personal qualities that provide a sound foundation for the future. All those concerned with the school share these beliefs.
