Boarding can be full, weekly or flexi and we tailor our provision to suit each overseas family. As the oldest school in Sussex, we are proud of our history and tradition combining our established reputation in the South of England with a modern approach to teaching.
Boarding At A Glance
Overseas children are able to sample a slice of English life along with all our activities and excursions. At the end of the school day, we provide a full programme of activities ranging from Forestry Club and Science Club to German Club, Chess Club and Street Dance.
The Prebendal is renowned as a centre for musical excellence and approximately 95% of our pupils learn one or more instruments. Boarders will have plenty of practice time and will take part in concerts in Chichester Cathedral whilst also joining our many choirs, bands and ensembles.
There are special boarding activities from street hockey, beach trips, pumpkin carving and Bonfire Night to late night shopping, Burns' Night, ten pin bowling and ice skating. We also provide other extra sporting activities, such as tennis and sailing, which are chargeable. And, at the end of the day, boarders can connect with home via Skype.

Short Term Boarding at The Prebendal
Uniform & Sports Kit
Sport is a vital part of our curriculum and is played four days a week. Throughout the academic year, the children take part in Football, Netball, Rugby, Hockey, Cricket, Swimming, Rounders, Athletics and Cross-Country. We only expect short-term boarders to provide grey trousers (skirt for girls) and black shoes. We will provide the rest of the uniform. For sport, they can bring their own sports kit and if they are selected for matches, we will provide their kit.
We offer a number of options for overseas boarders - short-term placements (coming for a number of weeks but not a full term), termly placements and those coming for longer. Please contact our Admissions Secretary to enquire about the fees and arrangements.
