Virtual Tour

Welcome to South Lee School

At South Lee, we believe that if you create an environment where children feel happy, secure, challenged and valued as individuals, they will thrive.

In a fast-paced world, we need our children to be adaptable and flexible, to be able to problem solve and work collaboratively, to be able to think critically and most of all to be resilient. South Lee is a forward-thinking school, always looking for ways to enhance and ignite intellectual curiosity in our children.

We want them to become independent learners, to ask questions, to challenge what they already know, to learn new ways of thinking and to be the best they can possibly be.

We see the social and emotional aspects of learning as inextricably linked to academic learning and progress.

Ultimately, we want our children to grow up to be kind and compassionate human beings who contribute to the global society. Our curriculum is broad and inspirational, incorporating the Arts, Sport and a rich co-curricular programme.


We welcome visitors all year round to look round South Lee during the normal school day.

This is to allow visitors to experience the dynamic atmosphere throughout Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep School, with a tour around our facilities and a meeting with the Headmistress.

For more information about the school, to arrange a visit or to request a prospectus, please email or call 01284 754 654.
