What says..

‘It is a kind, gentle school, which has a certain magic that raises the children’s game and gives them the confidence to aim high,’ said a parent.

What the school says...

Lancing College Preparatory School was founded as Mowden School in 1896. Originally a family-owned boys' school it passed into the hands of Lancing College in 2002, when the first girls were admitted. It continues to be run along strongly family lines.

Central to our curriculum beliefs is the idea that all pupils have an area in which they can excel, and to that end we place huge importance on the teaching of Art, Drama, Music and Sport as well as all the subjects that you would expect to find in the National Curriculum. We offer a wide range of extracurricular opportunities. We have fielded successful teams in major games, as well as participating in squash, tennis, swimming, athletics, cross-country running and golf events in recent years. Outdoor pursuits are catered for with sailing and climbing clubs on offer, as well as through a biennial skiing trip and various outdoor expeditions.

A wide variety of learning styles is catered for in the belief that children learn best in an environment in which they are happy and secure. The outstanding results in academic Scholarship exams that have been achieved to a variety of schools in recent years have not been the result of hothousing, but of inspiring teaching and the hard work expected of a genuine scholar.

We value the opportunity to tackle difficult challenges and, through endeavour, to succeed and to enjoy the experience.

She is the first female head in the history of the school, and says she has the best of both worlds as...
