Hollington Primary School 

Quality Mark Awarded

Hollington Primary School have been awarded the Quality Mark. Find out more by visiting our Achievements Area.

The School Intranet is only accessible from within the school, and therefore not subject to the same restrictions as the web-site.

The Intranet contains all of the pages to be found on the School web-site, plus a number of other pages.  

It is anticipated that the Intranet could contain a notice board, and pages for details of coming events.  If you have any information you wish broadcast, pass the details to Mr Walpole, or, if you have ideas for additional pages for the Intranet, please pass them on to Mr Smith or Mr Walpole.



Hollington is a Primary School for children aged between 3+ and 11+ years. It has about 550 pupils on roll including the Nursery. The school has recently had a large extension added to the Quebec Road site which means that all the pupils are housed under one roof. The buildings are surrounded by large grassy areas and sports facilities. 


Hollington is a Primary School for children aged between 3+ and 11+ years.  It has  about 550 pupils on roll including those in the Nursery.  The school has recently had a large extension added to the Quebec Road site which means that all the pupils are housed under one roof.  The buildings are surrounded by large grassy areas and sports facilities.


The information give below is intended for parents who are considering their child's entry to primary school in 2002/2003.  It is correct in relation to January 2002 and includes any changes planned by the school for September 2002.  However, it must not be assumed that there will be no changes before the start of, or during the school year or the following years.

Parents who would like to discuss the school with the Head teacher are invited to arrange a visit at a mutually convenient time by telephoning the school secretary.

In each school year ( September to August), East Sussex primary schools try, wherever possible, to admit all children whose fifth birthday falls in that year.  The education Authority lays down a policy for planning admissions on a part-time basis during the year.  Much depends on the date of the child's birthday and the Headteacher will be pleased to discuss with parents the arrangements made for starting school.

If you would like a place for your child at the school you should complete the admission forms which are available from either the Headteacher  or the admission department at County Hall, Lewes.  The County's admission criteria for allocating places will be applied and these are published and available from the school or Lewes.  Attached to this prospectus is information about admissions relating to 2002.

Parents of children allocated a place at the school will be invited to a pre-school meeting and the children also have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their future surroundings.  In addition, teachers usually make an introduction visit to the home before the child starts in the Nursery or Reception class.

Nursery and Reception are referred to as 'The Foundation Stage'.  The children work on many activities in small groups, whole classes and individually.

The children have settled well in their new classes and are enjoying their everyday activities.  They have been painting, drawing and writing their names.  The children wanted everyone to see their hard work, so we have put some pictures on our page.

Years 1 and 2 have been looking at the growth of plants.  They have written some poems about the growth of some seeds they have planted.

They used a word processing package called 'Textease'

On Monday at school

I planted a seed

On Tuesday I watered it

And it grew like a weed

On Wednesday I looked at it

And I was shocked

It had grown six pairs of socks!

On February 4th, Agrippina and Secondus, two 'Romans' from London, travelled down to spend the day with Years 3 & 4.

We had a wonderful day learning about how truly disgusting the Romans were, and had a chance to dress up and to look at artefacts.  Many of the children had made shields and swords for homework, and they had the opportunity to learn some fighting skills and try different formations.

They learnt some basic Latin and then practised marching skills.  It was an enjoyable and memorable day and the children got a great deal from it.

Years 5 and 6 have been designing T-shirts in their art sessions.

Below are some of the results.




Hollington Primary School has many events taking place throughout each academic year.  These events range from visits from the fire service to fund raising events for charities.  There are annual events that take place in school such as the Christmas performances, carols and song and the Harvest festival.

The pages listed show photographs and brief descriptions of some of the events that have taken place, are currently taking place and that will take place in the future.

We hope that these pages will give you an insight in to what happens at Hollington Primary School and that you will want to find out more about our school.
