"One of the best value private schools." - The Telegraph, Jan 2020.
Families continue to choose The Prebendal for its small class sizes, its academic rigour, its unique location in the heart of Chichester and the perfect blend of opportunity and ambition set in a challenging and nurturing environment.
The Prebendal is extremely proud of its place in history as the oldest school in Sussex and equally proud of its modern-day flexibility. The school supports the needs of busy families by providing an extended day so children are able to come into for breakfast and stay through to supper. Flexi boarding has increased in popularity while the school’s unique link with Chichester Cathedral provides the perfect backdrop for assemblies and concerts.
The school has introduced the Pre-Senior Baccalaureate alongside Common Entrance. In schools that have been running a PSB skills-based curriculum it is clear the pupils take far greater ownership of, and interest in, their learning than is the case in a purely knowledge-based curriculum.
Other new curriculum features include the Prebendal Extended Project which enables pupils to focus more on the joy of discovering and investigating things for themselves. Pupils in Years 6-8 are also involved in a new programme of academic excellence called Quadrivium. These sessions are designed to broaden perspectives, raise aspirations and encourage pupils to think and articulate their ideas. Our Year 8 pupils also use iPads as an additional tool to enrich their learning and pupils in Years 6-8 can apply for the position of ‘Digital Leader’.
The school’s Beach School status means our younger children enjoy the advantages of outdoor learning by the sea. Beach School will become embedded in the timetable for our older pupils while the construction of a new outdoor classroom and amphitheatre for all year groups, has consolidated our commitment to outdoor learning.
Being in the city centre means we benefit from many attractions that are literally on our doorstep. In addition, our spacious playing fields and the Bishop’s Gardens provide further opportunities for outdoor learning and encouraging active imaginations.
Hitting the Right Note
We are considered to be a centre of musical excellence. Nearly all our pupils learn one or more musical instruments while the Choristers of Chichester Cathedral live and learn at The Prebendal. Pupils learn across a wide variety of musical provision including ensembles, Concert Band, 1st Orchestra and by giving individual and group performances in Chichester Cathedral.
The Prebendal is a way of life - where families come together and where children are encouraged to believe in themselves. Come and see for yourself.
