This lovely school is situated in the rural village of Upper Dicker in the heart of the Sussex countryside, close to the coastal resort of Eastbourne. The school is based on a former country estate with grounds extending over 80 acres /32 hectares, whose buildings form the core of teaching, activities and accommodation for students. The school campus has a unique, domestic feel, which forms a home from home for our students and creates a real sense of community and freedom. There are excellent sports facilities at Dicker. The centre welcomes up to 250 students per week from many different countries.
Most bedrooms have 2, 3 or 4 beds and have a bed and wardrobe and sometimes a study desk. Bathrooms are shared. Some boarding houses have their own communal spaces for students to relax.
