Welcome to Lavant House
Thank you for your interest in Lavant House School. It is my great pleasure to welcome you to our website where you can learn more about the first rate education the school offers. Lavant House is an independent girls' day and boarding school with a very special atmosphere. Our key strength is our small size; we welcome girls from Junior to Sixth form into our small, friendly classes which, combined with expert specialist teaching staff and outstanding pastoral care ensures that every girl achieves her very best.
We operate a dedicated Learning Centre where we offer specialised teaching support for pupils with dyslexia as well as extra coaching for those in the Gifted and Talented arena.
Academically our results are outstanding, girls invariably enter their first choice university. However, we know that an excellent school education is about so much more than results. We pride ourselves on our music, sport, drama and art as well as our spectacular range of extra curricular activities all of which make for happy, confident girls who are equipped to tackle the wide world and anything it throws at them!
Set in the glorious Sussex countryside and close to the attractive cathedral city of Chichester, the girls learn and develop their individual talents in the most beautiful setting. They have the freedom to be themselves, to roam in the lovely grounds and make long and lasting friendships. Everyone is valued and everyone has a contribution to make to our vibrant school community.
Just over an hour away from Gatwick Airport, Lavant House is home to our boarding pupils from overseas as well as the UK. Parents and girls appreciate the family atmosphere in the boarding house and many of our day girls take advantage of our fully flexible boarding arrangements. The boarders enjoy a rich programme of evening and weekend activities and they are often joined by day girls who can stay at school safely until their parents can collect them.
We’d love you to come and see for yourselves how Lavant House could greatly benefit your daughter. We hold regular Open Days and Drop-in Mornings where you can have the chance to take a good, unhurried look around and ask any questions of both staff and pupils. Of course, you are more than welcome to visit us at a time to suit you, simply call the office on 01243 527211 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be glad to make you an appointment.
I look forward to meeting you.
Caroline Horton, Headteacher
