Cottesmore School

Buchan Hill, Pease Pottage, West Sussex, RH11 9AU


Cottesmore is an award-wining academic boarding prep school for boys and girls in West Sussex, less than an hour from London. Cottesmore excels at 'modern' boarding. Its huge range of sports (29 at the last count), hobbies and activities supplement a diverse academic curriculum. The drama, music and arts programmes are equally purposeful and vibrant. 

Cottesmore has been preparing children for major public schools since 1894 and continues to provide excellent preparation for senior boarding schools who share Cottesmore's belief in nurturing a rounded, dynamic individual. 

"Quisque pro ingenio" is Cottesmore's unofficial motto: "Everyone has a talent". Cottesmore will find and nurture each child's talent and help the individual grow strong in the light of his or her own success. Cottesmore is a school where children are taught to have faith in their own ability in a caring, confidence-inspiring environment.

Cottesmore was awarded the Times Educational Supplement ‘Boarding School of the Year’ in February 2019 and was also one of three 2019 finalists for ‘Independent School of the Year’. Cottesmore has also been awarded the Crystal Award 2019 for academic results by Best Schools.
