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!

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
