EASEBOURNE Primary School is having a double celebration, looking toward a new term, in a new site.

The school said goodbye at the end of the summer term to their old home in Easebourne Street, having been there for 140 years.

Easebourne Primary has now re-opened on the site of the former Midhurst Intermediate School on Wheelbarrow Castle in Easebourne which was also, for a short while, home to pupils of the new Midhurst Rother College.

Headteacher Arthur Bain said: “Thanks must go to all those involved in the refurbishment, especially Drew Construction, our main contractor.

“They have done a fantastic job.

“Obviously we were sad to leave our ancestral home but we now have amazing facilities with improved access, and we are still a school at the heart of our community.”

The school still has a nursery but now it is part of an integrated early years foundation stage facility catering for children from six months to five years.

Each key stage also has a suite of rooms and facilities including sports and drama halls and an on-site woodland is currently being developed into a Forest Schools environment.
