Bede's Preparatory School

Bede's Preparatory School

Bede's Prep is a coeducational independent Day and Boarding school.

Our Prep School pupils, aged 4-13, work towards common entrance before they successfully move up to their next school.

Bede's Prep School is based in Eastbourne, nestled on a cliff top above Beachy Head, with stunning views of the sea.

Life is very busy here, with children enjoying a full and balanced programme of learning, where belief in the individual and our holistic educational philosophy focuses on the needs of each and every child.



Bede's Prep School has a reputation for offering innovation in the classroom, expansive opportunities outside of it and outstanding care in every aspect of school life - both in the boarding house and for our many day pupils.

Based in Eastbourne and with easy travel links to Gatwick, our site borders South Downs National Park and is nestled on a cliff top above Beachy Head with stunning views of the sea.

Ours is an holistic educational philosophy, meaning that we develop every aspect of a young person. We believe in providing children with rich learning opportunities that stimulate and broaden their knowledge, skills and understanding, engaging them in practical experiences which bring learning to life.

Children at all of the Bede's schools make independent choices and decisions about their participation in school life, become involved in the organisation, management and leadership of activities and take part in our expansive Co-Curricular Programme for myriad reasons - recreational, competitive or educational.

More than anything however, pupils feel empowered at Bede's.

This is because we are a school which enriches young people in the round so that they may lead full, worthwhile lives as confident, balanced members of their communities.
