About Us

Dorset House is proud to be one of the oldest prep schools in the country and we can trace our roots back to the 18th century.

The school moved to its current site on the banks of the River Arun, in the heart of the South Downs National Park over 50 years ago and children can enjoy the wonderful setting with boarding and dining in The Manor whilst being taught in modern, purpose built classrooms.

Alumni include comedian Harry Enfield; actor Ed Speleers (Eragon and Downton Abbey); Jockey Harry Bentley and F1 driver Jolyon Palmer.

Visitors are always welcome by appointment.  Please call 01798 831456 to arrange or email sobrien@dorsethouseschool.com
