History of East Farleigh Primary School

A school was first established in East Farleigh in Lower Road about 1845. This dame school was superseded in 1870 by a new school built by the Church. A second storey was added in 1885. In 1936, a wooden building was erected on the present site but a fire destroyed this on Coronation Night in 1953. The school log books were destroyed in the blaze. The school moved back to the Victorian school near the church, until the current building opened in 1956, the concrete phoenix on the wall symbolising rebirth.

In 2003 the school undertook extensive building work. Three new purpose-built infant classrooms and an ICT suite were added to the building. This has enabled the school to develop additional teaching areas, a library and refurbish all other classrooms and facilities.

The present building has seven classrooms, an ICT Suite, a spacious hall and its own kitchen. All classrooms are equipped with interactive teaching boards and computers. The school is set in very pleasant surroundings next to a large playing field used by the school for various sports.
