Claremont School is set across two sites of extraordinary beauty in over 120 acres of stunning grounds and woodlands.  The school distinguishing itself in this area of East Sussex as a co-educational day and boarding school for students aged 3 months to 18 years. Claremont students come from all over the world, which makes for a rich and culturally diverse boarding community we are justly proud of.

Principal welcome

Claremont welcome pupils from all walks of life, whatever your belief, creed, ability (academic or otherwise). Down to earth and possessed with an unrelenting focus on giving students the best possible preparation for the world, we provide an environment where all can thrive and students can really ‘be themselves’.


Claremont Preparatory School was founded in 1925, and in response to parent demand, Claremont Senior School opened in 2011. In 2018 the school became part of the International Schools Partnership group, becoming one if its 40+ schools around the world.

“Being able to prepare young people for Maths degrees at Harvard as effectively as for Fashion courses in London is something all our staff are deeply proud of”. Ed Dickie – Head of Senior School  

We offer a safe, happy and quintessentially British boarding experience in a multicultural environment where everyone is welcome, listened to and respected.  A wide range of co-curricular and weekend activity programmes ensure that all boarders have access to a dynamic and fulfilling range of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.

Our close proximity to London and the coast make Claremont a great choice of school for all families looking to place their children in a safe UK location within easy reach of the Capital and its airports, as well as main travel links into Europe.

Although non-selective, Claremont’s GCSE and A level results have been truly exceptional. Creative and Performing Arts are a particular strength and unique in the UK is the Claremont Football Academy run by a holder of the UEFA Advanced Coaching Licence and a professional talent scout.

Claremont has been judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in the last 3 consecutive inspections.
