"Skippers is a magical school. A place where every child can be the child they want to be. The school caters brilliantly for all three of my very different children who are happy and thriving. It's a gem of a place with a fab reputation, I wouldn't hesitate recommending Skippers." Current parent 2023
The children at Skippers Hill are at the heart of the school and ensuring their happiness and wellbeing is key. The high academic achievement, broad range of talents and impressive social confidence that the children show year after year is embedded in the school's core ethos. Their smiles speak for themselves!
An excellent team of specialist staff provide exciting opportunities for the children to achieve to the best of their abilities in all areas. Whether they thrive on academic challenge, feel a burning desire to perform, are bursting with creative spirit or can't wait to hit the sports field, the children are encouraged to make the most of every opportunity.
The strong academic results speak for themselves, with children consistently performing above national and local averages at every stage of their education. For a mixed ability school, Skippers has an excellent reputation for gaining significant numbers of scholarships for entry to top senior schools at 13+ across a range of disciplines. The school has strong, long-standing relationships with the senior schools in the area and Skippers children are highly sought-after for their sound academic grounding, strong sense of community spirit and overall zest for life.
Skippers is privileged to enjoy a stunning rural setting in 22 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside that truly enables the all-round development of the children in their care. Children are provided with the space to flourish in every sense and the bespoke programme of outdoor learning is interwoven throughout the curriculum for all ages.
Skippers is a warm and welcoming community; a visit to the school would be strongly advised in order to experience the energy for yourself and to gain a deeper understanding of what a special place Skippers is.
