Battle Abbey Prep Your Learning Journey Begins Here

‘Welcome to Battle Abbey Prep school, a truly remarkable independent school set in the seaside town of Bexhill-on-sea. We are a small, mixed ability school, where pupils excel in the rigour of academic studies but also thrive in the diversity of our enriched curriculum. Our small classes enable a more personalised, energetic teaching approach to be adopted, ensuring significant progress is made by all our pupils, regardless of their starting point. The enrichment programme includes an impressive range of after school activities, trips, workshops, special days and independent projects, which keep teaching and learning current and dynamic. The excellent pastoral care and interest we extend towards the whole family, helps us to understand and nurture every aspect of the children in our care, in our warm, family environment.

I would be delighted to show you our vibrant school, where children genuinely are happy learners, confident and keen to embrace all the opportunities we have to offer’.

Prep and Nursery School Open Days:

Our next Open Day is on Saturday September 25th 2021, 10.00am – 12.00 noon

Due to the current situation re Covid19 we are not planning to host a traditional Open Day until the Autumn Term 2021. Instead we will be conducting bespoke tours which we hope will give you an understanding of what Battle Abbey Prep School can offer your child. 

The tours will be tailored to your child’s current year group/entry year group.  If you are interested in attending one of our tours please fill in this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
