A Small School…With Big Ideas

Deepdene is a co-educational school in Hove, delivering a rigorous curriculum within a supportive and uplifting community.  We are a small school with big ideas!

Deepdene enjoys strong and established links with Roedean and shares Roedean’s ethos, combining the highest academic standards with an expansive and exciting all-round education. At Deepdene, we pride ourselves on offering an affordable, bespoke, quality education, where every single child feels nurtured and valued, and, most importantly, that their voice matters.

Pupils are challenged to reach their full potential within small classes and a supportive environment. At Deepdene, knowing the unique and individual character of every child is central to our ethos and enables us to support and challenge our pupils to become the best versions of themselves. Teachers and staff contribute to the ethos of the school by developing a creative and inspiring environment which helps our pupils to develop a lifelong thirst for learning.
