Set in 22 acres of idyllic countryside, Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School is a non-selective co-educational independent school in East Sussex for children aged two to thirteen.

Above all, we aim to provide a happy, busy, stimulating and structured environment, where our children feel valued and secure and where they thrive and achieve to the best of their ability. We pride ourselves on the warm and harmonious family atmosphere at our school, where strong and lifelong friendships are formed.

While our academic results speak for themselves, we are also judged by the real ambassadors of the school, the children. Their good manners, sensitivity, sense of community and self confidence speak volumes.

Part of Bellevue Education...

Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School is part of Bellevue Education

Bellevue Education is committed to excellence in education. Each Bellevue school is run independently but shares the same values: we believe in broad curricula delivered in innovative ways that excite and engage children; we believe in investment – in teachers, buildings and technology; and we believe that exceptional results should be a by-product of the education that we offer, not the exclusive focus.

We recruit the best teachers and head teachers and make sure that they are fully supported with innovative resources, shared best practice and focused training. We involve parents in their children’s education with not only regular meetings and written reports, but also with head teacher blogs, social media and parent workshops. Most importantly, we treat every child as an individual with their own unique set of talents.

Bellevue pupils are encouraged to aim high, and we provide them with everything they need to succeed.
