Deepdene is a highly successful, well established, independently owned co-educational Nursery and Prep school in Hove. The school offers provision from 6 months to 11 years. We have approximately 200 pupils on role with 80 in the Nursery department and 125 in the Prep school with an almost equal split of boys and girls.
Deepdene was founded in 1948 as a privately owned and managed school. More than half a century later Deepdene remains truly independent, managed by joint proprietors Nicola Gane and Elizabeth Brown, Head of the Nursery and Prep school respectively.
Although academic excellence and successes in Music, Drama, Art and Sports is of course a high priority we pride ourselves in the nurturing environment and moral attitude that prevails. Students and staff alike play their part in looking after the needs of others in the school community. We very much believe in praise and the celebration of success, from our 6 month old babies to our 11 year old children. This contributes to the exciting and happy learning environment of both the Nursery and Prep school.
Along with all teaching staff, Nicola and Elizabeth take a personal interest in the development of all the pupils at the school. Deepdene consistently achieves high academic results with many of our Year 6 pupils gaining top scholarships and awards at their chosen senior schools. As a non-denominational school we welcome children from many different faiths and cultures. Our ethos and teaching create a small inclusive community of engaged learners who develop as confident individuals and understand the importance of kindness and respect.
