Combining a pupil-centred approach, a rigorous curriculum and a holistic ethos, Deepdene delivers the best possible education in an environment that is uplifting and supportive, and where every single child feels valued.

At Deepdene, learning extends well beyond the classroom.  Click here to read the Headteacher’s Weekly News which will give you an insight into school life at Deepdene. The Prep Facebook page is another great way to see what’s happening day-to-day.

An All-round Approach

We know that a happy child who finds interests and talents in one area will build confidence to be successful in another.  That’s why we are committed to providing a range of opportunities in Sports and Performing Arts, as well as plenty of meaningful experiences through clubs, activities, trips and through our partnership with Roedean.  To find out more, please see the following pages.

Teach on the Beach

Located in Hove and less than ten minutes’ walk from the beach and Hove Lagoon, at Deepdene Prep we have plenty of resources on our doorstep that we regularly draw upon to encourage experiential learning, most recently encapsulated by our Teach on the Beach initiative, where we take each class at least once per term for a lesson on the beach to support work in Geography, Science and Art.

A Virtual Tour

In this video, join a range of pupils on a tour through the school, from Nursery up to Year 6.  The best way to get a sense of the atmosphere and ethos of Deepdene Prep & Nursery is to visit in person where the children themselves act as your tour-guides, but please do watch the video below as a taster of the real thing.
