School Description

This is a Montessori school, led by Montessori principles and practice, following the training and guidance of the Association Montessori Internationale. The school’s stated aim is ‘to aid [each] child’s natural development from birth to maturity’. The school’s previous standard inspection took place on 2–3 May 2012. Since then, the school has had successful ‘material change’ inspections. Following these inspections, the school has been permitted to operate across two sites, expand its age range up to 16, increase its capacity to 130, and, very recently, to admit boarders. The boarding provision was not part of this inspection. There are three communities at the original site in Hove. The Infant Community, which Inspection report: The Montessori Place, 19–21 September 2017 Page 10 of 13 provides for children up to the age of three, is registered and inspected separately and was not part of this inspection. The Children’s House caters for children aged three to six, and the Elementary for pupils aged six to 12. The school’s second site, Eason’s Green in Framfield, also has a Children’s House and an Elementary Community. In addition, a Young People’s Community has operated for slightly over a year, catering for ages 12 to 16. Currently, the oldest pupils are aged 13. The boarding provision accommodates up to 15 residential pupils, aged 11 to 16, in two separate wings. The school uses no alternative provision. Few pupils are identified as having special educational needs and/or disabilities. A small but growing number of pupils speak English as an additional language.

The Montessori Place Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
