Location, Location, Location!
Based in the South of England, we consider ourselves to be extremely blessed.
A city school right in the heart of Chichester, Prebendal benefits from excellent transport links and an easy proximity to cities including London (70 miles), Brighton (30 miles) and Guildford (50 miles). Gatwick Airport is under an hour’s drive, while travelling by car from Heathrow Airport will take just over an hour and a half. Southampton Airport is also nearby. There are good rail links and Chichester Railway Station (with direct trains to London and Brighton) is a few minutes’ walk from the School.
Culture, countryside and coastal
A few minutes’ drive North reveals the delights of the picturesque South Downs. A similar journey South and we arrive at the coast, with its glorious beaches.
As for Chichester itself, our school is based in a truly beautiful Roman city. Boasting numerous attractions and places of interest, one of the most fascinating of these is the iconic Cathedral. Attracting thousands of visitors from all over the world every year, this Mother Church of the Diocese of Chichester stands in the centre of the city, directly next door to The Prebendal School. We have been the Cathedral’s choir school for centuries. Choristers are educated at our School and they sing, daily, in the Cathedral.
Boarders have many opportunities to enjoy all that the city and the surrounding area has to offer. From visits to the world-famous Festival Theatre to day trips to the Isle of Wight and beautiful country estates, a trip locally to the Witterings means surfing, swimming, sandcastles and, of course, ice cream!
