Lancing College Prep Worthing
D Coed 2-13, West Sussex

At Lancing Prep at Worthing we aim to provide every child in our care with an excellent all-round education. We have small classes, dedicated teachers and outstanding pastoral care. Every child is known as an individual and every child is valued as a member of our family. In our community we celebrate together, we eat a hot healthy ‘home-cooked’ lunch together, we play together and we learn together.

In our classrooms children flourish; they are able to achieve their potential in an enriching and very positive environment. We have high expectations and nurture a love of learning which we hope will last a lifetime. The children have space to work in, bright classrooms full of natural light, grass to run on and they are provided with a wide range of educational experiences which broaden their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

All that I am, everything I can be

Westbourne House School is a co-educational, boarding and day Prep, Pre-Prep and Nursery school for children aged two-and-a-half to thirteen.

At Westbourne House, we uncover the magic in each child and ensure they make the most of the world of experiences offered to them here. We develop lifelong learners, cultivate curiosity and reward initiative. Most importantly, we do this within a kind, caring and happy environment.

Westbourne House School has an outstanding reputation for all-round excellence and over 100 scholarships in the last five years - in a variety of disciplines to top-tier secondary schools - bear testament to that.  However, this isn’t how we measure achievements here: we see success as achieving personal bests and being the best that YOU can be. Children often exceed their expectations.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate report (2015) found the quality of the pupils' achievements, personal development and school leadership to be 'excellent'.
