History of the School Site

In 1954 and 1956, two schools were built on the site for a middle school (8-11 year olds) and a first school (5-8 year olds).The two schools remained unchanged for many years. The two schools remained as Infants School and the Junior school until 1978/9 when we became a middle school and first school.

In April 1994 the Infant Department added a Nursery Class and in 1995 the facility for Autistic children.

Three years later in 1998, the Junior Department added their facility for Autistic children.

In 2008, the local authority decided to merge the two schools to form West Blatchington Primary and Nursery School.

We are now incredibly excited to have had planning approved for our new school building which is due to open in Spring 2019.  Read more about the plans here: New Building
