Our Village

The beautiful village of Firle is nestled at the foot of Firle Beacon in the South Downs. Firle is Anglo-Saxon for "oak-covered land", and in 1496 it became the site of Firle Place, seat of the Gage family, Norman barons who came over with William the Conqueror in 1066.

Firle Place is still home to the Gages, and the village is also home to a popular pub, shop, several businesses and our school...

Our School

Ours is a small Church of England primary school which has been educating children from the ages of 4 to 11 since 1845. Housed in the original building shown above as well as new mobile classrooms the school has extensive grounds and access to a local Nature Reserve. Dedicated staff, supportive parents, a vibrant community and, of course, the children combine to make ours a successful school and enable us to implement our philosophy...


A modern education in a caring, Christian and family-orientated village school.

Our Vision

Children, staff, governors and parents working in partnership to enable all children to realise their full potential.

Our Aims

·        For all children to be given a strong Christian foundation in their ethical and spiritual life.

·        For children to experience a broad and exciting curriculum that fosters creativity, independence and a passion for learning that continues throughout their lives.

·        For children to learn to value and respect themselves and others as individuals with equal rights and responsibilities.

·        For children to be inspired by the environment in which they live and learn and to become stewards of it.

·        For children to be fit and healthy in body, mind and spirit.

Our Values

Everyone in school will strive to: -

Be friendly
Be honest
Respect self and others
Take responsibility for their own actions

 Through these values we expect to have a safe and happy school in which every child can learn free from bullying or prejudice.


Clubs will run from the week beginning Monday, 17th September, till the week beginning Monday, 26th November, apart from the Monday clubs which will finish on Monday, 3rd December because we miss 26/11/07 & cookery which starts Thursday, 27th September and ends Thursday 6th December. This means all clubs run for 10 weeks. For all clubs we are charging for the whole term up front. If this leaves anyone disadvantaged due to financial constraints, please come in and see Mr. Kidd and we will work something out. All money will go into school fund and be used for resources for clubs or the wider school.

Please return the form by Friday, 14th September with the money for the term in cash or cheque made payable to Firle School Fund. Football cheques should be made payable to Lewes Development Fund. Places will be allocated on a strictly first-come-first-served basis. Hopefully everyone will be able to do what they want, but if we have to turn anyone away from a full club we will let you know before the first session.

We will take registers for each club, so if for any reason your child cannot make the club on a particular week, please let the school or club leader know. We will inform the leader if the child is off school. Similarly, children not on the register should not attend the club. This way we can keep the clubs running smoothly and the children safe.
