Local Amenities
at Worth


Worth School is not only in a beautiful setting, within the grounds of Worth Abbey, but also in an ideal location.

Just seven miles from Gatwick Airport and halfway between Brighton on the South Coast and London, the School is within easy reach of two diverse English cities as well as a gateway to Europe and the world.

However, contrast is provided in that Worth is centrally placed to the many quaint villages and historical landmarks in the South East. For some ideas on places you can visit in Sussex please click here.
