The school was built in 1971 and extended in 1992.For those who do not know the area, Ringmer village is a few miles east of the county town of Lewes. Just to the south of us is the world renowned Glyndebourne Opera House which employs a number of the parents. The school adjoins Ringmer Community College which the majority of our pupils go on to attend for their secondary education.

Aims of the school
- To stimulate curiosity, imagination and a desire to investigate and to learn.
- To help children towards a greater understanding of, and respect for, the world in which we live.
- To nurture the development of those skills which will enable children to gain personal autonomy and become full and active participants of the community.
- To encourage the growth of self discipline, responsibilty, respect for individual and group differences, and consideration and courtesy to others.
Our school is a county primary school for girls and boys between the ages of 4+ and 11+, with approximately 255 children on roll.
Normally the school has a separate class for each year although occasionally classes have been aggregated depending on the size of year. This is only done when the resulting class has a good balance of ages and sexes and care is taken to ensure that a broad range of abilities is fully accomodated.
