What says..

The boarding houses are all different, but each with a strong sense of home. A house mum bakes pancakes and fudge crumpets for movie night. Houseparent dogs bounce into the common room in the evening. The kids love it. Seaford proudly locates learning support in the centre of the campus, ‘not the usual broom cupboard under the stairs’, said a parent wryly. Nearly half the pupils at the school use the unit at some point, by teacher or self-referral. Parents like its…

What the parents say...

My son visited the Summer School at Seaford College. He loves it. The staff was there for kids to help, to guide them. He liked all activities. The visit surpassed his expectations.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since 2013, John Green. Background in professional rugby – he teaches the first team, donning wellies with suit. Taught previously at Barry Boys’ School, Ardingly College and Hurstpierpoint, before becoming deputy at Seaford. Married to Sîan with three children.

Tiggerish energy, staunch and unapologetic supporter of the underdog, with a clear vision of how he wants Seaford to be. Works hard to install a sense of value and self worth in all his pupils: A* pupils at Seaford now consider Oxford; BTec pupils are told ‘you could be employing those A* pupils in a few years time’. Quality he most desires for his pupils: pride in self.

Academic matters

In 2018, good solid results: 33 per cent A*-A/9-7 at GCSE; 47 per cent A*-B, 32 per cent A*/A at A level. Judged...

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.

Special Education Needs

Pupils are accepted on the basis of a trial day and ability testing, supported by a reference from their current headteacher. If there is a learning difficulty. a report from an Educational Psychologist is useful and may be used in conjunction with our own assessment when making decisions on places. On arrival, all new pupils are given screening tests to check for any difficulties or signs of dyslexia. The Head of Learning Support re-assesses each pupil who has difficulties, and designs a programme for their needs. This programme will be different for every child and may require extra tuition, usually one to one, but sometimes in pairs, on a once or twice a week basis. Individual reports are written on each child and copied to all teaching staff. 09-09
