St Andrews Prep

St Andrew's Prep is an 'Excellent' rated Independent Prep School for boys and girls, aged 9 months to 13 years, offering wrap-around care.  It is located on the beautiful sunshine coast of Eastbourne. Set within 12 acres of beautifully tended grounds at the foot of the South Downs and just a five minute walk to the beach yet near enough to London for educational and boarding trips, St Andrew’s Prep offers the best of both worlds.

Their staff work hard to develop the right attitude towards academic study and encourage St Andrew's pupils to think for themselves so that they can tackle challenges confidently. Over the last five years, the school's Year 8 pupils have won 138 scholarships to their senior schools including Eastbourne College, Brighton College, Hurst, Millfield and St Edward's Oxford.

The school's boarding house, Colstocks, is in the heart of the school. The House is lively and full of fun but also offers its boarders a place to relax and enjoy the company of friends from around the world. On weekends, their experienced Housemaster and his team offer activities and weekend trips to venues including Harry Potter World, Thorpe Park, rock climbing, go-karting and trampolining.

Bright World's placement service is FREE. If you would like more information on St Andrew's Prep School and how to apply for a place in the school then contact us now.


St Andrew’s Prep thoroughly enjoys working with Bright World. They understand what our families need, and also what schools need, to make the experience for our international pupils the best it can possibly be. We would always suggest Bright World to any of our families looking for guardianship services and hope to continue working with them in the future.
