About Haddon Dene

Welcome to 

Haddon Dene Preparatory School , Broadstairs, Kent. 

We are a small, friendly co-educational prep school, based in Thanet and close to the fast rail link into London. Founded by Miss Olive Vyse in 1929, Haddon Dene Preparatory School has grown from a class of three girls into a popular, co-educational preparatory school for children aged 3 – 11.

We are proud of our children’s high success rates in the Kent test, and our excellent academic reputation. We combine a stimulating and engaging curriculum with a welcoming and encouraging family atmosphere.

We believe passionately in the importance of recognising every student as a unique individual, each with their own gifts and talents. We encourage our students to discover and develop their natural abilities and talents. We are committed to nurturing every child in our care, instilling confidence and a sense of self-worth.

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.

Throughout our history, we have ensured a continued traditional approach to learning, and encouraged our pupils to develop into independent and confident thinkers. Through the continued support of the local community, and the maintained dedication of our teachers, our history has been one full of support, encouragement and with an excellent academic reputation.

Because of our traditional approach to learning and strong family atmosphere, we have grown from into a pillar in the local community. Haddon Dene Preparatory School will always be committed to small class sizes, and maximising each child’s potential.
