Long Description :
Handcross Park is set in 52 acres of parkland in West Sussex, close to Haywards Heath, Horsham, Crawley and London. We are part of the Brighton College Family of Schools and offer an outstanding education to boys and girls aged from 2 to 13.
We are rapidly making a name for our unique approach to education. Here are a few of the reasons why:
-Academic excellence is at the heart of a Handcross Park education, and we ensure that every child is well prepared for their senior school and beyond. Inspiring a lifelong love of learning is key to our teaching
-We have a 100% pass rate at Common Entrance and a high percentage of our Year 8 leavers gain Scholarships to Brighton College and other top senior schools
-Kindness is central to our culture at Handcross Park. Visitors always comment on the pupils’ ‘friendliness, good manners and confidence’
-We are committed to making sure that pupils are digitally literate and ready to embrace technological change. We were named an ‘Acer Innovation School’ in 2018 (1 of only 15 in the world to achieve this accolade) and we are one of the few Google Reference Schools in the UK
-All our pupils learn Mandarin and Spanish from an early age. As these are the two most commonly spoken languages in the world, our pupils will be well placed to take on the global workplace. French and Latin are also taught in the upper years
-100% of Prep School pupils play regular sports fixtures against other schools, whatever their ability
-From Year 3 onwards, every pupil takes part in our Leadership Programme, developing key life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration, creativity and innovation
-We have been shortlisted in the prestigious TES Awards for ‘Prep School of the Year’, ‘Best Use of Technology’ and ‘Early Years Setting of the Year’ in 2018: testament to the hard work and dedication of our incredible teachers
-Our beautiful Secret Garden setting was shortlisted for ‘Pre-Prep of the Year’ in the 2018 Independent Schools of the Year Awards
-Unlike many Prep Schools, we don’t have Saturday School, allowing our pupils to make the most of their precious weekends, either at home with their family or within our boarding community, taking part in our extensive weekend activities programme
-We strongly believe that children should have a childhood as long as possible. With 52 acres of stunning grounds to explore, our pupils have everything one could dream of to create idyllic childhood memories.
