Parents choose Lancing Prep at Hove for its distinctive ethos and the warm sense of family and community that permeates every layer of life at our school.
We aim to inspire a desire for excellence, to develop independent, searching minds and to foster creativity. Academia is rightly important to us but of equal importance is our pupils’ personal development.
Early years are so vital to a child’s development and we aim to provide an academically successful and enjoyable beginning to our pupils' school careers. In Pre-Prep we lay the foundations for learning before they move up into the Prep School years.
All our children are taught by fully qualified and experienced teachers, with the younger year groups supported by an excellent team of teaching assistants.
We know the importance of giving our pupils an environment in which they feel happy and secure. School days are vibrant and busy. Our children are encouraged to be brave, to push themselves to be the best they can, and not to be afraid of making mistakes in pursuit of learning. Every child has a sense of their true worth as an individual but also as part of the family.
