Our Location

The Prep School is nestled in a hidden leafy gem site in Lower Parkstone, Poole, Dorset, a mere stone's throw away from the stunning award winning beaches of Bournemouth, the world renown Sandbanks, Shore Road, Canford Cliffs and the beautiful Chines.

It is less than six miles from our Senior site in Southbourne, with school mini buses servicing both sites.

Lower Parkstone itself, is a small suburb with character and brilliant restaurants and is less than a five minutes walk from Ashley Cross, with vibrant bars and shops. In the opposite direction you will find Westbourne, located to the west of Bournemouth Town Centre. It is a well established, thriving shopping area for local residents and tourists, with a large selection of boutique and individual shops which give Westbourne a distinct flavour combined with a friendly atmosphere and further places to eat, drink and relax. You can discover fascinating history on the Poole Quayside and when exploring the Georgian Old Town. (Visit Poole)

You can enjoy the great outdoors and watersports in the second largest natural harbour in the world, behind Sydney, and take in the natural beauty by walking and cycling the miles of heathland and coastal routes that offer stunning views along the way. The National Trusts' Brownsea Island is situated within the harbour, Corfe Castle 16 miles away and the Natural World Heritage Jurassic Coast roams for miles to the west. 

All of this and the delights of Bournemouth all on our doorstep.
