A foundation for all-round excellence, 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 more than 20 years we have successfully integrated a holistic ethos with an excellent 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.

Head Teacher: Clare Eddison
