Every day is an adventure

Our Private Pre-School & Pre-Prep School In Sussex

At Great Walstead, near Lindfield, West Sussex, we offer an exceptional Pre-Prep environment where children from age 2 1/2 have the space to explore and learn through play with our unique teaching & learning approach. We know from experience that happy children learn best when being active explorers both inside and outside the classroom.


We are passionate about outdoor learning and we make use of our Outdoor Classroom, Forest School and the 100 acres of woodland to provide a variety of exceptional learning opportunities.

In addition to having our own dedicated and secure play areas, children have access to the school's great facilities which include the Music School, Performing Arts Centre, all-weather pitches and, from Reception, the Swimming Pool.

For an impartial view on our school, you can read a recent 'Muddy Stilletos' review here.


Teaching & Learning

At this age, we just want all our children to be excited about embarking on the magical adventure we call learning. That’s why we focus on feeding their mind, and developing their curiosity and imagination.
