About Our School
We aim for excellence in the classroom in order to sustain the school’s strong academic reputation. Every year scholarships and academic awards to senior schools demonstrate the achievement of our pupils. The school encourages and expects high standards of teaching and eduational practice. The three main qualities demanded of teaching staff are exceptional subject knowledge, strong classroom management and the ability to inspire children in the classroom and beyond.
Staff and pupils of the school recognise and aspire to three core values which extend into all areas of school life: Work Hard, Play Hard and Be Kind. These values are life skills that we wish pupils to carry with them into adulthood.
The school facilities are centred on a large country house overlooking Ashdown Forest, in its own woodlands and extensive playing fields. The school has outstanding sporting, music, drama and arts facilities. These include an art room, design technology workshop, the library, an ICT suite and a large theatre with music rooms. There is also a sports hall, tennis and netball courts, squash courts, a golf course, an indoor swimming pool, several playing fields, an assault course and a 220m zip wire.
