Lancing College Preparatory School at Hove can open the doors to a world of opportunity for your child.
We aim to provide every child with opportunities to achieve their very best within a broad and varied curriculum. Whilst ensuring that each child achieves their very best in academia, with our ultimate focus being on success in Scholarship and Common Entrance in Year 8, there is much more to be found than academia alone. Central to our curriculum beliefs is the idea that all pupils have at least one area in which they can excel, and to that end we place great importance on the teaching of Art, Drama, Music and Sport alongside those subjects you would expect to find in the National Curriculum. Once again, standardised testing shows that pupils are working above the expected national levels. All of our Year 8 leavers typically gain places at their first choice schools and a high percentage attain scholarships or awards in so doing.
In order for our pupils to succeed and achieve their best, we know the importance of giving them an environment in which they feel happy and secure. School days are vibrant and busy, and the 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. We run the school on family lines, each child being given a sense of their true worth as an individual but also as part of the family. Pupils are taught to respect others, to work as part of a team, and to maintain the traditional values so often forgotten in the modern world. Much of our ethos is drawn from the fact that we are a Christian-based school. The morning assembly often reflects our Christian beliefs but does not exclude those from other religions. This ethos is maintained as the pupils move on to Lancing College, our Senior School and the usual destination after Common Entrance.
Whilst we are proud of our traditions, we are also a forward-thinking school, looking to build upon our past successes to achieve even greater heights in the future. By the time pupils leave Lancing Prep Hove we hope that they will have acquired a confidence and a self-belief, together with a set of values that will remain with them throughout their lives. This website is of course only a snapshot of the school and I hope that it will encourage you to come and take a closer look. I look forward to meeting you and your children here at Lancing Prep Hove.
