What the school says...

Formerly Mowden School, Lancing Prep Hove joined the Lancing College family of schools in 2002, when it also became co-educational.
We aim to offer every child the opportunities to achieve their potential within a broad and varied curriculum. Whilst ensuring that each child achieves their very best academically, we believe there is much more to be found than academia alone.
Central to our ethos is the idea that all pupils have at least one co-curricular area in which they can excel, and to that end we place great importance on the teaching of Art, Drama, Music and Sport alongside those subjects you would expect to find in the National Curriculum.
Whilst we are proud of our traditions, we are also a forward-thinking school, looking to build upon our past successes to achieve even greater heights in the future.
