The Curriculum

Bede’s bespoke and enhanced curriculum focuses upon skills as much as content and encourages curiosity, self-reliance, self-belief and the confidence to ‘have a go’. We see our job as helping our children to discover their talents and to build upon them.

Games & The Arts

Bede’s recognises achievement at all levels and encourages children to take part and join a sports team. Facilities are outstanding. The performing arts are a big part of school life, with many performances throughout the year.

Pastoral Care

For boarders, home is a beautiful Victorian villa overlooking the sea. Matron and her team look after the needs of the children, and teachers and tutors are always there to help with any problems.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

‘I am very proud that Bede’s is a school that encourages children of all talents to pursue their goals. We believe that education begins with the individual and that all children are unique.’

Outstanding Characteristics

Bede’s is one of the largest prep schools in Sussex and is blessed with a stunning location on the seafront at Eastbourne. The site has outstanding
facilities including sports centre, swimming pool, outstanding sports coaching and purpose built nursery and pre-prep. At 13 most children move on to Bede’s Senior School, eight miles away and set in 100 acres of rolling Sussex countryside.
