Our School

Sheddingdean School was built in 1986, opened in 1987, and provides accommodation for 210 children. It is co-educational and caters for children aged 4 to 11 years. Children are admitted at the beginning of the academic year in which their fifth birthday occurs. The school comprises three units:  an administration unit (containing the Head Teacher's office, Business Manager's office, general office, staff room, information centre, assembly hall) and two teaching units - one for Key Stage 2(KS2), and one shared by Foundation Stage (Reception class) and Key Stage 1 (KS1).

The KS2 teaching area comprises 4 classrooms where the junior age children are taught, whereas there are three infant classes with a shared activity area in the Foundation Stage and KS1 area. Each key stage has its own cloakroom and toilet facilities. Hard surfaced playgrounds and grassed areas to the front and rear of the building provide facilities for play, physical education and environmental studies. An early years play area is located adjacent to the Reception and Year 1 classes. There is large fixed play equipment in both playgrounds and there are further planned developments to the outside areas.

The school has a very well-qualified, enthusiastic and committed staff; an active parent association, FOSSA (Friends of Sheddingdean School Association) and a very supportive and involved Governing Body.

It is important to provide all children with a broad and balanced curriculum – where the Arts, Science, Humanities, ICT and PE are highly valued. 

We hope your child's time at Sheddingdean will be happy and rewarding, providing them with a firm foundation for future learning.
