Pupils’ Welcome

Our Head Girl and Head Boy have written a pupils’ welcome to describe why they enjoy being at Dorset House: 

“Every day you walk into DH surrounded by a family atmosphere; where Reception to Year 8 and teachers really know each other. All around you is the beautiful West Sussex countryside and the amazing grounds.  

This makes DH so different from other schools and I love it.”  


“I have been at DH for 9 years and I have loved my time here. In particular I like the fact that it is a small school with a homely feel and that everyone knows each other. The sports facilities are great with opportunities to try everything. DH can compete with schools twice the size of it in sports fixtures.

The school is in a beautiful and quiet area which allows for a great learning environment. Flexi-boarding is so much fun. I have had some great teachers over the years, who have inspired me to achieve as much as possible. 

I don’t know why you would want to go to school anywhere else.“
