Lindfield school was opened in September 2000 following the amalgamation of separate infant and junior schools.
The Key Stage 1 wing consists of 6 classrooms, a well resourced library and the William Allen Hall.
A Key Stage 2 wing was added in 2000 and includes: eight classrooms, a computing room and SEND room. These two wings are linked by a central rotunda to the former infant school, which was built in the early 1970s.
To meet the high demand for places at Lindfield Primary Academy, our academy has expanded further. In September 2014 we opened a new teaching block which includes 3 purpose built Early Years classrooms, a spacious Sports Hall, open learning space and cooking facilities for the children.
Lindfield Primary Academy (LPA) is one of eight primary schools in our catchment area. By September 2018 it will reach its new capacity of 630 pupils.
The Mid Sussex District Plan submitted for examination in August 2016 makes provision for the building of 13600 new homes up to 2031 – an average of 800 per annum over the planning period. A WSCC planning paper entitled “Planning School Places 2017” predicts 1301 additional primary school places will be needed in Mid Sussex between 2016 to 2032. To help meet this increased demand in our catchment area there is a proposal that a new primary school is built at Hurst Farm and in the longer term, a second at Lindfield/Scamps Hill.
Demand for places at LPA is therefore forecast to remain high.
