Battle Abbey Boarding School

Top Independent School In Kent & Sussex

Why Battle Abbey

Boarding at Battle Abbey School is a unique experience. Our Boarders tell us that staying at the beautiful Abbey in the rolling fields of the Sussex countryside is just like staying at Hogwarts! (Though we cant guarantee the moving staircases!)

School boarders become a member of a caring, close-knit international community. This not only broadens horizons but also facilitates life-long friendships around the world.

The boarding school is open to secondary school and sixth form students in Full & Flexi boarding. Flexi boarding is open to current day students to bring the school community together and allow students to thrive in an academic environment during exam season if they wish.

‘Battle Abbey has become a second home for me. When I arrived two years ago from Germany, I was so nervous and scared, however within two days I began to enjoy every minute of this wonderful experience. It is important to try new things and meet new people and there is no better place for this than boarding.’

Amelie, 17, Germany

‘Boarding has genuinely been one of the most impactful times in my life, personally I have been able to develop myself and my work habits. The atmosphere in boarding was welcoming and warm, genuinely – the best thing about this place is the community and friendships I‘ve made throughout boarding.’

Battle Abbey School & Boarding Values

From the Nursery through to the Abbey, we are a caring and highly regarded family school with exceptional pastoral care and sensitive discipline, accompanied by strong academic results, focusing on the importance of each individual child.

With our enviable locations, impressive and talented students, loyal and dedicated staff and our distinctive ethos based on kindness, compassion, friendship, mutual respect and trust – Battle Abbey is a special place to grow.

We embrace education in the fullest sense of the word. From the age of six months, our children begin to forge their own rich, educational tapestry, following our innovative BAS Tapestry curriculum. Not only do we work to allow your child to achieve the best of their academic potential, but our skilled team of highly experienced educational professionals work collectively to know your child, their strengths and their passions, allowing them to develop their own unique pathway through our school, gaining crucial skills which will equip them for their future.

Battle Abbey Boarding aims to create upstanding citizens and does this through our everyday routines with specific emphasis on developing independence, resilience, and life-skills in a nurturing and safe environment.

The philosophy of the boarding house is to make boarders feel happy, safe and fulfilled in their new home. Pupils should feel supported, valued and challenged to help them meet their full potential. They are encouraged to participate in the many activities we organise as this helps us to develop a strong boarding community where lasting friendships can be made.

Members of the Battle Abbey family can expect a warm welcome and the reassurance of knowing all staff from the office to the Head are accessible when you need them.
