Welcome to Haddon Dene

Established in 1929 Haddon Dene School is a friendly co-educational preparatory school providing an excellent all round education for children aged 3 to 11 years.

We aim to value the individual nature of each child and to forge a strong home-school partnership, which we consider to be the foundation for each child’s success. The school’s motto is ‘Aspire, Experience, Achieve’ and the school seeks to ‘encourage all children to have high aspirations, to experience as many of life’s opportunities as possible and to achieve in all that they do’.

We have a first class academic reputation; exceptionally high rates of children pass the Kent Test and progress to the local Grammar Schools. Highly focussed academic classroom lessons are balanced with specialist teaching of French, Drama, PE, Swimming and Music.
