School History

Local historian Mary Hallett has written a fascinating history of Itchingfield Primary School. What nastiness lurked under the old school well? When was electricity laid on at the school? Why was Itchingfield a split site school?

Itchingfield School – nestles in the idyllic Sussex landscape of the Weald, its peace and tranquility concealing a history of power politics, intrigue and moving personal lives of the many children and families who have used the school over the years. This lovely book, comprehensively illustrated throughout with photographs and drawings, records the school’s life from its formation in 1854 until its 150th anniversary in 2004.
