Welcome to Haddon Dene

Established in 1929 Haddon Dene Preparatory School is a friendly co-educational preparatory school providing an excellent all round education for children aged 3 to 11 years.We have a first class academic reputation; exceptionally high rates of children pass the Kent Test and progress to the local Grammar Schools.

We are a small, friendly school, where the individual matters. This means we believe passionately in the importance of recognising every student as a unique individual, each with their own gifts and talents. We are committed to nurturing every child in our care, instilling confidence and a sense of self-worth. We encourage our students to discover and develop their natural abilities and talents. Our mission is to be a beacon of inclusive excellence, cultivating confident, talented and enthusiastic students who enjoy working with others and are ready to influence the world.

Our school motto is “Aspire, Experience, Achieve”

The ethos at Haddon Dene inspires students to live their dreams. We strive for all our children to experience a varied, high quality curriculum that is tailored to individual needs.

We look to provide a broad and challenging educational experience, coupled with a progressive and diverse curriculum led by both exceptional class teachers and outstanding specialist teachers too for example in Music,French, P.E and the Performing Arts.

It is impossible to convey the friendly, caring atmosphere of the school or the commitment and enthusiasm of the staff in this website. Please do come and see for yourself, you will be very welcome. We are a small Prep school with big ambitions!

Kindest Regards
