EASEBOURNE Primary School has officially set up residence at its new home on Wheelbarrow Castle, on the site of the former Midhurst Intermediate School.

The school held its official opening of the new site, led by Councillor Peter Evans.

Catering for children aged from 4-11 years, Easebourne CE Primary School was founded in 1872 by George James, Earl of Egremont.

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

Cllr Peter Evans is the West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Children - Start of Life.

Speaking about the new era for the school, he said: “This is a fantastic new site, that has been refurbished by WSCC.

“It is good to see that children have the space to enjoy their education, with room for music rehearsals and brilliant sports facilities.

“And it is all in a beautiful part of West Sussex.

“Headteacher Arthur Bain is doing an excellent job, and the team of staff are all incredibly professional.

“As a cabinet member I can say I am impressed with the school.

“Children are clearly happy here and doing well on the new site and hopefully Easebourne Primary will remain here for many years to come.”

According to cllr Evans, the former site in Easebourne Street will remain the property of the Cowdray Estate.

“This is a very dynamic school,” added cllr Evans.

“The church is also involved and fully behind lessons so children are able to have a well rounded education.”
