Educating the whole child

Our mission is to develop young people with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We stress the total development of each child: spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional and physical.

School Development

School development: now and in the future

Danes Hill has experienced an extensive and exciting period of development over recent years, and this is testament to our philosophy of providing the very best facilities for our staff and pupils to flourish.

In the last few years alone, the following projects have been completed:

  • Rebuilding of the Ravens block;
  • New Dining Room and alterations to the Main School kitchen to enhance service;
  • A new entrance to the Ravens and School House complex;
  • New offices and storage space;
  • New library;
  • New classrooms in the Ravens block;
  • The temporary Wrens building has been granted permanent status;
  • Updates to the swimming pool at Main School with improved spectator viewing areas;
  • New classrooms in Pre Prep (Bevendean);
  • Transformed the 'peanut'


We are delighted that planning permission has finally been granted to build a sports hall for Danes Hill boys and girls. A huge thank you to governors, colleagues and parents who have energetically worked over many years to provide this much needed facility for the Danes Hill community. We will ensure that the hall is built with the minimum of inconvenience to the school and our local neighbours.

Exciting times lie ahead as we continue to strive to provide our pupils with outstanding facilities and resources to enable them to benefit from the very best education and life experience from their time at the school.
