Annan School is a small independent primary school for children aged 2 to 11 years set in a beautiful location between Lewes and Uckfield in East Sussex. At Annan we believe in educating children to believe in themselves and reach their own unique potential. Relationships are really important to us and as a small school we work hard to ensure children learn to respect each other and adults. It is the quality of relationships within the school which most often strikes visitors and newcomers and we know have the biggest impact on children’s willingness to learn.
Our small classes allow teaching staff to build close relationships with children respecting each child’s individuality and giving each child personal attention. We value and celebrate each child’s achievements with genuine praise and appreciation. We understand that everyone learns in different ways and want to create an environment in which everyone can develop as confident, thoughtful learners who are happy, love learning and make outstanding progress.
We are so proud of our Infant House for nursery and infant aged children aged 2-7 years. It provides an inspiring and beautiful environment both indoors and out. Children have bountiful opportunities for leading their learning and for creating possibilities. For more information or to arrange a visit please call us on 01825 841410.

Marvellous afternoon sharing our Threads of Time topic work at the end of term. There was Stone Age soup, a medieval banquet with dancing, games, potage and artisan bread. A Bayeux Tapestry display and individual presentations on different historical topics from the Elder class. An amazing display of work. Click here to see some pictures from the day…
This week we have had Community Playthings in school filming and taking photos of their new furniture. In exchange they will be giving us some of their products to keep. A few weeks ago they came over to make a video about their new mud kitchen and den building range. As a thank you they gave us a set to keep – it is worth several thousand pounds. We are really grateful to parents who agreed for their children to take part. They looked like they really enjoyed the experience.
Some of the sights and sounds from a truly wonderful day. Thank you again to everyone who took part.
We have been visiting our elderly friends at Hurstwood View Care Home for about four years now, our meet ups happily increasing in regularity as time has gone on. This week, for the first time, we hosted our friends at Annan with singing, music, food and plenty of time for play and interaction.
KinderPlay is a group for any parent and child (under the age of 4) and is open to anyone. Sessions are held on Tuesday mornings in our Infant House during term time, from 10am to 11.30am and there is a small charge each session of £3 per family. The sessions are staffed by one of the kindergarten team and we ask that parents stay. Everyone is welcome and there is no need to book. (As there are both inside and outside play areas, we do ask if you can bring some indoor shoe or slippers / wellies to change into). First session of 2019 will be on Tuesday 15th January.
