What the school says...
Great Ballard School is situated in the South Downs National Park and, as such, we successfully combine our modern teaching resources and our stunning woodlands and grounds during lessons, activities and break times. Our excellent facilities include; a modern science lab, ICT suite, and outdoor classroom in Pre-Prep, a Dance and Drama Studio, Music Centre, Astroturf, covered swimming pool and playing fields with views of the South Coast.
Since Great Ballard School first started in 1924, there has always been a strong belief in learning from the environment and the ethos of the school has developed to encourage children to explore and discover their world and we now offer Forest School education programmes.
Academic, Art and Music scholarships have been gained to many senior schools in recent years including; Lancing College, Hurstpierpoint College, Brighton College, Seaford College, Portsmouth Grammar to mention just a few.
Great Ballard prides itself on its friendly, family atmosphere and offers flexibility to our parents with subsidised bus runs, after school care and activities and the popular breakfast club, all of which help our parents with their busy lifestyles.
We also welcome International boarders for short or long term stays which gives them a great opportunity to experience British Boarding in our small, rural, family community.
We would love to have the opportunity to show you round ...Read more

Special Education Needs
Our school has an established Learning Support Department that supports about 40 children on a 1 to 1 basis and also works with parents and outside agencies to support these children and any others within the school who have need. We cater for children from Nursery through to Year 8 (2 - 13+ years). The majority of the students on our LS register have dyslexic difficulties, or difficulties that come under that umbrella. All children are seen as individuals who make up part of a large family which is the school.
