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.

stdClass Object ( [caption] => The action packed film, Adventure Boyz starring St Andrew’s Prep pupils, Rory and Felix, is now available to watch in the UK and Ireland (and other UK territories) on @primevideouk, @itunes, @virginmedia and on various other platforms. The film was shot here at St Andrew’s Prep as well as other locations in and around Eastbourne. It is also worth mentioning that the creators of the film recently closed a deal with eBay which offered 25% off each film bought on the ebay site going towards @nhscharitiestogether to thank our key workers for their incredible work. If you would like to contribute, you can do so on the @ebay_uk website.

stdClass Object ( [caption] => We are delighted to announce that St Andrew’s Prep has been shortlisted in the International Student Experience category in the Independent Schools of the Year Awards hosted by Independent School Parent magazine. Hundreds of schools enter these prestigious awards and, according to the Chair, Dr Helen Wright “… are demonstrating resilience and agility and delivering a first class education experience to its pupils in the most challenging (COVID-19) circumstances.” Results will be announced in October. Gareth Jones, Headmaster said, “Being shortlisted for an award in this really important sector of our industry highlights our excellent offering to our pupils and their families from overseas and I am thrilled that the hard work of our boarding team has been recognised. This award comes swiftly on the back of our inclusion in The Good Schools Guide for Boarding Schools which focuses on the culture, ethos and unique personality of schools, so it is clear that St Andrew’s Prep really does understand what our national and international markets are looking for. Fingers crossed for October.” #independentschoolparent #ISOTY2020 @ISParent @bsaboarding @goodschoolsguide @tatlerschools @muddysussex [id] => 17855421182060633 [media_type] => IMAGE [media_url] => [permalink] => [timestamp] => 2020-07-07T10:33:26+0000 [username] => standrewsprep_eastbourne )
