Moving To The Area

We know that many parents considering a move from London in particular, are looking for a traditional prep school in an idyllic country setting but with a forward thinking attitude.  We believe that Dorset House ticks these boxes.

The school is on the banks of the River Arun in the heart of the South Downs National Park.  The coast is just over 10 miles away.

There are many lovely Downland villages in the area and a wide variety of larger villages/small towns.  Our pupils tend to live within 10 miles of school and here are some of our nearest towns:

  • 10 minutes from Pulborough
  • 10 minutes from Arundel
  • 15 minutes from Petworth
  • 15 minutes from Storrington
  • 20 minutes from Midhurst
  • 20 minutes from Steyning
  • 30 minutes from Chichester


For commuters

The closest station to the school is Amberley but Pulborough offers a more frequent service.  From here it is 1 hour 15 mins to London Victoria and 40 minutes to Gatwick Airport.
