70th Anniversary- A History

For many years, Deepdene was a girls’ school, with boys only in the nursery.  Through the nineties, after an unsettled period, the School became co-educational, taking boys and girls between the ages of twelve months and seven years.

Deepdene pupils wore a striking blue blazer initially, but, in more recent years, this has been replaced by the Deepdene stripe which gives pupils a distinctive identity in the City.  Following greater success and rising numbers, the School started to take children to year six and became established as a co-educational Prep School in 2007.

We pride ourselves in offering an affordable, quality, independent education, where pupils are challenged to reach their full potential in small classes and a nurturing environment.  After 70 years, the ethos and values of the School remain true to those of its founder; knowing your child is at the heart of all we do.
