This term we have been showing around families whose children are due to start school in September 2023.

The feedback from these tours has been extremely positive with parents commenting on our wonderful classroom learning environments, the great outside space we have and the excellent behaviour of our children around the school. 


Please telephone the office if you would like to attend one of these tours and spread the word to let friends and family know about our fabulous school.

The deadline for submission of applications to start in September 2023 is 15th January 2023. To apply for a place, please click here or if you need a paper form, please contact the school office.

To ensure that sufficient meals are available on the day, we ask you to book the meal in advance. A Ping was sent out last week with details on how to order. If you cannot access it, please contact the school office. There will be no Junior sandwich option on that day.

Festive Jumper Day

On Christmas lunch day, to add to the Festive spirit the children (and staff) can come to school wearing a Christmas jumper/top (or normal jumper/top that has been decorated) in addition to their normal school uniform if they wish.

Please do not buy anything special.

Cross Country Championships

At a very wet and muddy Waterhall, the Hangleton Cross Country team ran brilliantly, showing grit and determination and great running ability in challenging conditions.

 A special mention to Florence (1st), Will (5th), Niamh (10th), Otis (14th), and Sophie (18th), who will all run for Brighton & Hove in the Sussex Championships in the New Year.
