Seaford College


Seaford is a small, friendly co-educational College, situated in an unrivalled position near Petworth, West Sussex. Seaford boasts 400 acres of parkland, a chapel noted in the Domesday Book and a beautiful Mansion House. Seaford has its own golf course, clay pigeon range and extensive sports facilities. With its own Prep School, Senior School and Sixth Form, the College is located away from the distractions of city life, yet is still within easy reach of cultural and commercial centres. The College accepts day pupils and also offers both full and flexi-boarding for pupils aged 7-18. Seaford College is an academically strong mainstream school that welcomes the academically gifted (we have many Oxbridge successes) and those who find the examination culture a challenge. We have those who may have organisational or processing difficulties although our real strength is that we enable our pupils to achieve their potential and beyond. We are proud to offer excellent learning support for pupils in a mainstream school context which sets us apart from other schools. All this is on offer along with an outstanding Art & Design Department, providing the ideal environment for all pupils to thrive. Intake is non-selective but expectations are high and the College offers a wide choice of subjects at GCSE and A-level. Scholarships are available in music, sport and art, as well as for academic studies.

We are proud to offer an inclusive environment where each individual is known and valued; is given attention and respect. Our aim is to educate the whole person; to find the strengths of each boy and girl and to enable them to succeed. We are a warm, friendly school with excellent teaching and learning across all departments. In addition to this very strong academic core we offer outstanding pastoral care and an impressive programme of extra-curricular activities. Seaford is strong in Music, Art, Sport and Performing Arts and can meet the needs of your child, whatever their interests. Seaford is proud of its purpose-built music school and state-of-the-art classrooms for maths and science, plus all-new boys' boarding houses. A typical Seafordian will be an articulate, confident and well-rounded young person. Seaford College offers an inspirational environment where personal bests are achieved both in and outside the classroom. Seaford College is a hidden gem, tucked away at the foot of the picturesque South Downs and is easily accessible from London and the M25 and is only 45mins by car from Gatwick. Seaford is becoming a popular choice in the south west London area with its extensive bus routes and flexible boarding options. Seaford has close links with Cowdray and Goodwood for Polo, Shooting and Green Power projects. Seaford's ability to offer a breadth of choice to meet the needs of the whole family and its focus on the individual is proving to be very alluring.
