A Compassionate Learning Community
The Iron Age House
Also part of our school identity is outdoor education. We have won awards for our school grounds and are very proud of their variety and purpose. Through a partnership with the Moulsecoomb Forest Garden and the passion of our teachers and community, we have developed a wonderful outdoor space for learning.
In 2007 the school began a series of learning projects with the East Sussex Archaeology and Museum Partnership with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Six historical replica buildings have been constructed on the school grounds with all our school children and many members of the community involved in the process. The children were taught the authentic techniques for building first the Iron Age House in 2007, followed by the Saxon, Mesolithic, Neolithic and Medieval Houses and ending with the Anderson Shelter which is a typical World War 2 bunker. The buildings are a huge part of our school's identity and continue to provide pleasure and intrigue for our children. They would not have been possible without the drive and passion of our previous headteacher Charles Davies. They are now used for history workshops which we provide for our own children and for visiting schools.

We are an Eco School, which means we work hard to consider our impact on the environment through our daily running of the school. Caroline is our Eco School Coordinator and leads a team of Eco Warriors who carry out lots of tasks to keep our school as eco as possible.
