Our school was opened in 1876. Last academic year we celebrated our 140th Anniversary!
Rotherfield Primary School is a community village school, maintained by the Local Authority. Built in 1876 (at the height of the Victorian Parliamentary education reform), it caters for children between the ages of 4 and 11. At the age of 11, children transfer to a selection of schools in Crowborough, Heathfield and Wadhurst as well as church and grammar schools across the Kent border in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge.
Improvements are constantly taking place within our school and with our environment outside. We have recently built a new classroom and SENCO office. This has enabled us to move to one form entry from September 2016. There are two playgrounds, a quiet area, a pond, a natural wildlife area and a school garden. The school also benefits from use of the Recreation Ground opposite the school. The grounds provide excellent opportunities for environmental work as well as ample facilities for sports and play.
We admit children to our school from Rotherfield, Crowborough, Mark Cross, Mayfield, Tunbridge Wells, Eridge and Frant.
