Fernhurst Primary School joined the University of Chichester Academy Trust in September 2014. Set in the Wealden village of Fernhurst in West Sussex, the school has high aspirations for all pupils and a strong relationship with the local community.  Two new classrooms enabled the Academy to open with seven classes to teach pupils in years R to 6 while a recently completed refurbishment provides up-to-the-minute IT provision and a bright new library at the heart of the school. 

Extensive grounds and access to 70 acres of nearby woodland support Learning Outside the Classroom and every classroom has direct access to their own outdoor space.
