A foundation for all-round excellence, designed with mindfulness at its heart

The Dharma Primary School, in Brighton, is a non-selective independent school and welcomes children aged 3-11 years from all backgrounds, faiths and abilities. Our  philosophy is rooted in Buddhist principles and for 20 years we have successfully integrated a holistic ethos with a sound academic education. Through the practice of mindfulness, the school aims to cultivate wisdom, reflection and compassion in children and to help them unlock their full potential.

“The Dharma Primary School provides a good quality of education where pupils enjoy coming to school and become confident and self-aware…outstanding personal and social development.” – Ofsted

“…educating children with warm hearts and clear heads; children who will one day help to create a more compassionate, intelligent and peaceful world.” – Inspired by the words of our patron His Holiness the Dalai Lama
