Primary School





Come and Visit Us!

We love showing visitors around our school!

If you are a prospective parent for September 2022, already living in West Sussex,  Hampshire or Surrey and looking for your child to move schools or are thinking about moving to the area, please get in touch to arrange a tour of our lovely, village school.

Each family group will be given an hour slot where they will receive a personalised tour, which will include a chance to see all classrooms, the hall, library and our extensive grounds. We ask that all adults wear a mask, if not exempt from doing so, and that when on the premises you follow our Covid-19 procedures, which include sanitising your hands on arrival and having your temperature taken. 

Please let the school office know whether you would like a morning slot (9am-12noon) or afternoon slot (1pm-5pm) on one of the following dates.
