Welcome to Brighton and Hove Prep School, a vibrant community where girls are at the centre of everything we do. We are situated on a purpose-built site on Radinden Manor Road in Hove.
Throughout each girl’s journey with us, we aim to provide a purposeful and stimulating environment, where each individual is given the confidence and opportunity to flourish in a supportive community. Girls leave us with an awareness of personal achievement, possessing the independence, confidence and self-reliance needed to embrace senior school. We are proud to see our girls leave BHHS with a strong sense of who they are, what they have achieved and in eager anticipation of the next challenge.
Year 2 pupils at Brighton and Hove Prep leapt into Summer term with great enthusiasm to return to our southern coastline for Beach School
Pupils in Nursery through to Year 2 participate in beach school on a rotation throughout the year, enabling them to explore the coastline with varying tides, temperatures and weathers. This visit, the tide levels were perfect for rock pooling, allowing the girls to explore with nets and buckets. Pupils enjoyed searching for all sorts of sea creatures, which they could then look at properly in tanks. Year two particularly enjoyed looking at the crabs up close as they could see all their features, before carefully returning them back to their homes in the rock pools.

Brighton and Hove Prep Present ITV Meridian Weather
Pupils in Year 1 turned their hand at weather presenting with ITV Meridian's Holly Green. The girls had their classroom turned into a studio and presented their own weather forecasts in front of a green screen.
Pupils in Year 1 at Brighton and Hove Prep saw their classroom transformed into a television studio last week. As part of this term's learning topic on the weather, ITV Meridian's weather presenter, Holly Green, came to talk to the class about her job and lead a weather presenting workshop. An ITV television crew accompanied Holly and they documented the day, to feature it in their news programme. Year 1 interviewed Holly, with questions they had prepared with the biggest questions being 'How do you know where to point when there is just a green screen behind you and what are you holding in your hand when present the weather?' The class found out for themselves as they took turns to have a go presenting in front of the cameras while others went outside to the satellite van where they could watch the action live in the 'studio' upstairs and see how the graphics are added and changed as it happens. Naturals in front of the cameras, confidently using newly acquired, specific vocabulary, here is the link to their presenting debut: http://www.itv.com/news/meridian/2018-03-21/the-weather-girls-have-learned-from-holly/

Pupils at Brighton and Hove Prep invited their Grandparents and guests for an afternoon of tea, cake and music at their annual "Grandparents Afternoon" event.
Prep School pupils invited their grandparents and guests for our annual “Grandparent’s Afternoon” event, where they had the opportunity to showcase the school and their work for their visitors.
Their guests arrived and were entertained by the Upper, Lower and Early Years choirs and the Orchestra and Strings groups, followed by a tour of the school and afternoon tea and cake.
It is such a well-attended event each year and we were delighted to welcome so many grandparents, family and friends and to see the special relationships between the generations and just how proud the girls were of the school. Thank you to all the staff who helped to make this event possible once again and to our catering team for providing refreshments for our guests.
Year 2 at Brighton and Hove Prep enjoyed another trip as part of their "Wild Beach School" on the south coast beach at Shoreham.
Year 2 ventured down to the beach again, this time to our new location slightly further along the coast towards Shoreham. It was a slightly windy and overcast day so the pupils took the opportunity to work in groups to design some weather reports. The girls all had fun working out what to say, thinking about key details to point out about the weather and some top tips for people thinking of visiting the beach that daily – mainly to wrap up warm and don’t go in the water! They had a search for natural treasures on the beach and the pupils were not disappointed finding stunning shells, different coloured pebbles and even a nearly complete (dead) crab (and yes it was quite smelly)! The girls also spotted the wind turbines at Shoreham Port! All in all another very exciting trip to the beach.
