If you were unable to make our Open Days for prospective pupils and their families looking for a school place in Reception for September 2024, please contact the school office. We would love to show you around our wonderful school.
Tucked away in the hills of Hollingdean, a small school with a big heart and great ambition. As a Catholic school, we welcome children of all faiths and none; our diversity is our great strength. We are a small school with beautifully behaved children and very supportive, friendly staff. Visitors to our school often remark on the calm, spacious environment and warm welcome. Our Ofsted report also made reference to the family atmosphere.
Our children say "If you spend just one day here, you know everyone by the end of the day" and "even the staff are friends".

Pre-COVID and the last time pupils were formally tested, we were once again, very pleased with our place on the Primary School League Tables. We were in the top 20% of Brighton schools for the % of pupils achieving the expected level in RWM (reading, writing and maths) combined - significantly above the National.
Likewise, we were in the top 20% for pupils who made at least expected progress in reading and maths between KS1 and 2 (July 2019)
