Head Teacher’s Philosophy
We seek to educate children in the fullest sense – expecting them to aim for the highest standards possible in everything they undertake. We are privileged, through our excellent facilities, to offer a wealth of opportunity that allows each child to discover their individual talents and gifts. Childhood should be as happy and unhurried as possible.
• The school motto – Aim High, Be Kind, Dare to be Different – encourages us to seek the best in and for each child.
• Friendships ‘for life’ are formed within a nurturing, family environment.
• Teachers are adept at tapping into and nurturing each child’s talents, which is demonstrated through scholarship success.
• Our 65-acre site in the Ashdown Forest boasts outstanding facilities.
• We feed into over 20 of the country’s leading senior schools.
• Just 45 minutes by train to London Victoria & London Bridge.
