HAVE YOU GOT A CHILD DUE TO START SCHOOL NEXT SEPTEMBER? 

ARE YOU MOVING TO THE AREA AND LOOKING FOR A NEW SCHOOL FOR YOUR CHILD?

IS YOUR CHILD LOOKING FOR A FRESH START AT A NEW SCHOOL?

We can help & advise you on options, guide you through the process and assist with the application, so why not start the journey with a visit to our school?

 

 

Come and Visit Us!

We love showing visitors around our school!

If you are a prospective parent for September 2020, 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. Whilst it is hard to know what the situation will be in even the near future, we are assuming that the rule of six will still apply and ask that family groups are limited to a maximum of four people.  Should the guidance change we will of course let you know and tailor the tours accordingly.

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. Please also let us know the names of any adults and children who will be accompanying you and which Pre School your child currently attends.

Our upcoming open day dates are:

Sunday 13th December 2020

Saturday 9th January 2020

Please contact Hannah Porter on 01428 653144 or office@fernhurst.w-sussex.sch.uk to book your place!

We look forward to welcoming you to our school!
