Our School

Thank you for the interest you have shown in our school. We might be a small school, but we think big, and our aim is to give our children not only a good grounding academically, but as wide a variety of experiences as possible both inside and outside the classroom.

Clapham and Patching is a caring school which aims to create a stimulating learning environment in which every individual has the opportunity to be the best they can be. We are part of the South Downs Education Trust. 

We value our strong relationship with parents and carers. Together this helps us achieve the very best for the children in a mutually supportive partnership between parents, teachers and the school community. For this reason we continually welcome and encourage parents or carers to participate fully in the life of our school.

We are in partnership with both Churches in the Parish and endeavour to make a real contribution to the life of the villages.

We know that if you choose our school your child will benefit from a unique setting which provides for the individual child a rewarding and enjoyable experience, which takes them forward  to become eager and effective learners for life.
