With no more then 10 to a class, a glorious National Trust house and sweeping views of the south downs, Slindon College really is the perfect learning environment. As an independent school, we do not appear in the Government league tables for 11 - 16, however our own data shows a value added of around 0.9; this would place us within the top 50 schools out of over 6000 in England and Wales.
Enrichment Activities at School
We offer a selection of enrichment activities at Slindon College, geared towards academic learning as well as vocational experiences, including:
- Core Subject Catch-Up
- Music, Art & Drama
- Greenpower cars
All students commit to enrichment activities Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Students can usually change their activity every term if they wish, however, there may be exceptions when activities are chosen specifically by staff for a student in order to strengthen their progress in a particular area.

Music at Slindon College
Music is not offered as part of our Curriculum, but is open to any who wish to take additional lessons or as part of our enrichment programme. Music teachers will come to Slindon for an additional cost and teach during lunch times. Piano, Guitar, Singing and percussion have been some of our most popular choices within the last few years! For full details on your child learning music, please contact our main office.
Slindon College students compete at Greenpower events in the UK. Greenpower Education Trust is a UK based charity helping to ignite students’ enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering and maths.
Reports and Parents' Evenings
All parents are invited to at least one formal parents’ evenings a year.
There is also the opportunity to meet staff formally or informally at 3.30pm each Friday over a cup of tea. At Slindon we welcome parents’ involvement in their son's education and invite you to phone or use our Portal emailing system if you would like to meet with a member of staff at any other time.
Comprehensive reports are produced at the end of every term, and summary interim reports are produced at half-term in the Autumn and Spring terms.
We believe in nurturing strong and lasting relations with parents to create communications which help your child make the most of their time with us and develop as they learn. Every Friday, we invite parents in to meet the teachers and senior leadership team in the dining hall, so they can have a chat about the week. There’s also a selection of tea and coffee, and homemade biscuits on offer from our wonderful kitchen.
All school meals are prepared onsite in our kitchens, and we can adapt your child’s meals to meet any special dietary requirements for allergies or religious reasons.
During the day, our First Aider oversees the health and wellbeing of all our pupils. When necessary, the school doctor is consulted and boys are taken to the local surgery by the First Aider, or the doctor visits the school. You will be contacted at the earliest opportunity in all cases of injury requiring a hospital visit. Please ensure that all medical forms in the parents’ handbook have been completed and returned to the school office before the beginning of your son’s first term.
Sitting in the beautiful county of West Sussex, Slindon is a peaceful village, located just four miles west of Arundel and six miles north-east of Chichester.
