Word From The Head

John Green

As a father of three children with very different personalities and abilities, I understand entirely the importance of finding the right school for your child.

It is certainly not easy to interpret the range of options available, nor to know how best to support our children. With this in mind, I would like to share with you why I believe the student experience at Seaford to be so special.

Everything we do is tailored to making each student happy, because we know that happy, well-rounded students will always exceed expectations and achieve great things.

Every student can, and should, achieve their very best, whether that’s academic distinction, sporting success, or artistic excellence. Our aim is to educate the whole person; to find the strengths of each boy and girl and to enable them to succeed.

We are a genuinely warm, friendly school with excellent teaching and learning across all departments. In addition to this very strong academic core, we offer outstanding pastoral care and an impressive programme of extra-curricular activities. Other schools make such claims, you may be thinking. However, it is my firm belief that it is the close and supportive relationships that exist between students and their peers, between students and their teachers and tutors, that form the solid foundations for all our children to grow and learn, to feel safe and be prepared to take risks, in the absolute certainty that we will always be there for them, to advise, guide and encourage. This is what we provide in our School.

Seaford is a co-educational, non-selective school, and we are proud to offer an inclusive environment where each individual is known and valued, is given attention and respect. Our aim is to educate the whole person; to find the strengths of each boy and girl and to enable them to succeed. We have everyone here in a true representation of society; what better preparation for the future can there be?

Seaford College is a mainstream school that welcomes the very brilliant (we have many Oxbridge successes) and those who find the examination culture a challenge. We have the academically gifted, and we have those who may have organisational or processing difficulties. We have everyone here, in a true representation of society; what better preparation for the future can there be? Our real strength is that we enable our students to achieve their potential – and beyond.

Our aim is to educate the whole person: to nurture individuality and an acceptance of others’ strengths and weaknesses, to develop initiative and an enquiring mind – a hunger for life. A typical Seafordian will be an articulate, confident and well-rounded young person. Seaford College provides an inspirational environment where personal bests are achieved both in and outside the classroom.

"I’ve passed your drive many times but never turned in!" is a comment we have heard many times. Do, please, come and visit us and experience Seaford for yourselves.

    School Reviews

    What makes this school special is the staff. Teachers go above and beyond to help pupils.

    I'm very down to earth; my talents have evolved during my time at Seaford. Seaford has given me the freedom to flourish and let me be who I want to be.

    We were impressed when we first came to look around, the students are so happy.

    At other schools, we got the feeling that they were more interested in how you child could help thier school. At seaford, all they're interested in is how they can help your child.

    Seaford is an environment where students can push themselves, rather than always being pushed.

    A happy, exceptionally caring school, which strive to do well by all who cross the threshold, whatever their ability.
