"The most important thing for me is that my children are happy and enjoy school, and that is definitely the case. The Reception teachers put a lot of effort into helping the children settle in and I cannot thank them enough."

"We toured the school with our child and noticed that she seemed to feel very comfortable there. Particularly after interacting with one of the teachers. She can be quite shy so this was a big deal for us. The atmosphere felt warm and welcoming and all the children we saw seemed content. The facilities looked great, especially all of the playgrounds and outside space."














"During an open day to many schools, Woodingdean Primary just felt safe/warm and friendly & welcoming exactly what I was looking for."











YR Highlights for Prospective Parents



"The teachers, the facilities, the new friends, and the vast open spaces of the school grounds bordering on the downs and views to the sea. It’s all amazing. Best of all, our little man is really taking to learning and school life like a duck to water." 

"We chose Woodingdean because of its location, cleanliness, spacious, tidy, friendly. close to downs, beautiful view, appears organised, and nice vibe."
