Editor’s notes


Bede’s Prep School is part of St Bede’s School Trust Sussex, encompassing the Prep School

in Eastbourne, and the Senior School, based at Upper Dicker

Bede’s Prep School was founded in 1895, having moved to its current location at the western

end of Eastbourne seafront in 1900. The school campus is situated on the edge of the South

Downs National Park, on the cliff tops above Beachy Head, looking down to the sea

The school is a thriving IAPS Prep School with over 400 pupils on roll from Nursery through to

Year 8.

Recent results have been impressive, with over 20 scholarships to Senior Schools (including

Bede’s Senior School) being earned in the last three years and strong marks seen at

Common Entrance, particularly in English, MFL and Biology

The schools ISI inspection in May 2012 was highly complementary, with most areas

graded ‘excellent’ and everything in the EYFS ‘outstanding’
