St Andrew’s Prep inspires modern minds

We aim to prepare our children for this fast-changing world by giving them lifelong-learning skills alongside leadership, enterprise and teamwork opportunities.

We try to stimulate the imagination, creativity and inventiveness of every pupil while equipping them with the essential qualities of self-discipline, resilience, honesty, kindness and compassion.

Unique Location

Nestled at the foot of the rolling South Downs and just a just a five minute walk to the sea, we have nature on our front door and offer unique Forest and Beach Schools – both providing opportunities to complement classroom study and outdoor learning.
