Overview

The Little Explorers program, with 17.5 hours of lessons per week, takes place at Bede’s Preparatory School and is specially designed for our younger students. The school, founded in 1895, is located on the coast in the beautiful seaside town of Eastbourne just a few minutes away from the beach. The campus gives students the feeling of a family home, offering them a safe and happy environment in which to study and play.

The accommodation at the Eastbourne center is situated opposite the main school. They have separate houses for boys and girls. Bedrooms have 4 to 8 beds with storage space available. Bathrooms are shared. Students share bedrooms with children of a similar age and from different countries as this gives a greater opportunity for pupils to practice their English and make new friends from all over the world
