Abbey Prep hits top 100

Battle Abbey Prep School has been included in the Times Top 100 Independent Prep Schools this year for the first time. The table, which analyses SATs (Standard Assessment Test) results in Key Stage 2, sees Battle Abbey Prep at 76 in the country; the only Prep School which makes this prestigious list in East Sussex. 

Maria Maslin, Head teacher since 2011, was delighted with the news, The Prep School has a fantastic tradition of getting the very best out of its pupils and the results are testament to the hard work and dedication of our teaching staff. There’s a culture of success at the Prep School with the pupils aspiring to be the best they can possibly be and we are delighted to receive this accolade. Our parents will tell you that our strength lies in our small school feel where we focus on the individual but are large enough to give the children a broad curriculum. I’m immensely proud of this achievement.” 

Battle Abbey Prep School in Bexhill has a proven record of producing outstanding pupils, the vast majority of which go on to the Senior School at the Abbey in Battle. Small classes and first rate facilities ensure that each child receives generous amounts of individual attention and enjoys a happy and exciting education. The Schools ICT provision has been revolutionised in recent years to enable remote learning and the School opened its new library at the start of this school year. 

Both the Prep and Senior Schools are currently at record numbers and competition for places has greatly increased in recent years with many year groups now at, or near, capacity. Battle Abbey Prep School’s site boasts an indoor 25m swimming pool, astro turf and extensive fields; keeping the pupils physically active which translates well into classroom learning. Battle Abbey Nursery School also occupies the Bexhill site with many pupils joining the school at the age of two and staying all the way through to 18.
