Our School

Based at the foot of the South Downs just outside of Eastbourne, we are a school that prides itself on our excellent reputation and school diversity. We believe in working together as a school community to achieve the best results. Both our pupils and staff are encouraged and inspired to achieve their best potential.


We endeavour to provide an enjoyable, enriched educational experience that is both meaningful and relevant to every child and to develop personal qualities that provide a sound foundation for the future. All those concerned with the school share these beliefs.


Take your time to look around our school website. You will find both information about our school and extra curricular activities, alongside copies of important documents and other information you or your child may need throughout the school year.

We hope that you have all been keeping well and enjoyed the summer. We are looking forward to seeing the children return to school on Monday 7th September. Please see below a link to the East Sussex County Council website and information from the East Sussex Parent Carer Forum which we hope will be useful in answering questions you may have.

Sophie in King-Smith class - This piece of work wasn't even something that Sophie was asked to do but she was so enthused by her learning that she decided to extend her learning further and write this story.

Sophie has shown so much commitment and dedication to her work during lockdown and has always gone above and beyond - as shown once again by her beautiful work.

Seuss Class - Elsa's work over lockdown has achieved a remarkable standard. We have loved watching the videos of practical tasks she has completed, her voice overs describing her learning and have been awed by the quality of her presentation. We sent out a worksheet with experiments and problems for Year 4 to investigate but Elsa doesn't just complete worksheets!! We received these gorgeously presented illustrations and this written information in return:

I was very impressed to receive this email from Lizzie, in my class, as an example of a model pupil when it comes to completing all home learning set, communicating this to me, making advances in her learning and getting out and about to. I could not ask any more of any pupil! 

'Dear Mr T, I've just got back from a 6 mile walk to Wilmington and thought I'd better let you know what I've been up to this week.  I have done all the work set and uploaded my report to my work.  Jimbo is marking my Maths sheets but I can't wait all night for him to finish but I've done them all and I also did some my maths lessons on the bits I didn't understand about internal and external angles and I am an expert now!!
