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 Facilities

Our Main School facilities are designed to enhance the excellent standard of teaching that we offer at Danes Hill: state-of-the-art classrooms and six science labs are just the beginning of this. Our recently refurbished library offers a wonderful learning atmosphere, opening out onto the Headmaster’s Terrace when the weather permits it. We have an outstanding dining room and catering facilities, offering a range of lunch options for all students.

Not only do we provide a high standard of facilities for indoor learning, but our outdoor facilities are designed to enrich the student experience, making the most of our 55 acre plot. Sports facilities include football, cricket, and hockey pitches, netball and tennis courts, and a magnificent 25m outdoor heated swimming pool and spectator area, covered in the colder months.

To the further delight of the children, we have a large adventure playground which includes a zip-wire! Meanwhile, our younger students in Years 2 and 3 have their own outdoor adventure playground and field alongside their dedicated Wren’s Building.

Particularly special to the Danes Hill grounds is our Paddock, just a short walk from the main school. With its lovely pond it is the perfect location for our Year 8 summer camping trip, and a wonderful learning environment for Bevendean’s weekly forest school visit. To view the facilities at Bevendean, please click here
