The importance of a great start

At Ardingly College Prep we understand and expect that you would want the very best start for your child. There are many years ahead and we appreciate making the right choice of school is very important.  

The children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One curriculums from Reception to Year 2 and then the Key Stage Two curriculum from Year 3 to Year 6.   

Children spend a great deal of time in school, so a lively and engaging learning environment is very important. Children are safe and always supervised but can run around freely and enjoy the beautifully designed classrooms and play areas.  As the seasons change we take advantage of our wonderful outdoor space enriching their curriculum such as woodland walk to stimulate their creativity for art or writing; or discover different animal habitats around the College.  

We have our own library, Atrium assembly space, multi-purpose hall, adventure playground and sports pitch but also access to use the Senior College facilities such as the indoor swimming pool, the beautiful Chapel and experiencing exciting lessons in the Observatory and Science labs.  

 All these experiences make for a magical childhood and ensure children are eager to get to school each day to see what new adventure awaits.
