Welcome to our School

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.

Open Day – Saturday 3rd October from 9.30-1pm

We would love to show you around our kindergarten and school. During the pandemic we cannot open our site to large numbers of people but we will be holding tours of the kindergarten and school on Saturday 3rd October by appointment only. If you cannot make that day please ring Paula on 01825 840410 to arrange an alternative date. We have some spaces in most year groups.

Coronavirus pandemic – Annan School Update

Annan School is now fully reopen for all age groups. With small classes, lots of outdoor space and a creative and inspiring curriculum, Annan is the best place for children to learn safely. Well-being is very important and we nurture this through our caring emotionally intelligent approach and specific mindfulness sessions.

During lockdown teachers delivered a full programme of lessons to all age groups. This included live interactive sessions and a chance for children to see and chat to their friends and teacher online. In case of a further lockdown our online portal will swing back into place.
