About Us

Bede's is an independent, co-educational school located on two stunning sites, one by the sea in Eastbourne and one in the heart of the Sussex countryside.

Bede's Prep was founded in Eastbourne in 1895 with a roll of four boys. In 1968 the school accepted its first girl pupil, and in 1971 the school evolved into a charity. Out of the success of Bede's Prep School, Bede's Senior School was founded in 1979.

Today, we offer education from the age of 3 months through to 18 years old and pride ourselves on discovering and developing the talents of each and every pupil.

Bede’s is a school where every girl and boy is encouraged to aspire to be the best they can be, but most importantly they are empowered to enjoy their learning.

Bede's is a colourful and busy place, with lots of energy and a delightful rhythm. We are welcoming, kind and extremely ambitious for all of our pupils.
