What the parents say...

This is a very underrated school! The larger local schools seem to get all the good press but I am so glad I sent my daughter to this school. I honestly don't know why anyone would send their child to a school on a main road when they have the option of a lovely school set in open green spaces like this one. The teaching is of a really high standard and the SATs results reflect this, some of the best results in whole of Brighton. The school is big enough so the children experience diversity but small enough that no child should feel overwhelmed. If you live in or near Hollingdean this really is the best option!

My daughter had just started in year three but we know the school well as both my nephews and niece attended this school, achieving great results. When looking round the school I was impressed by the outdoor space, set against the downs, with a secret garden growing vegetables, chickens and a climbing tree. Even the library has an outside space with pebbles and a boat! The transition from infants is well managed and smooth with each child having a 'buddy' from year six. My daughter loves it!

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
