Pupils’ are extremely well mannered and respectful to staff and to one another. Their considerate attitudes are a key feature of the positive ethos that permeates through different times of the school day. (OFSTED 2018).

Amberley School is set in beautiful surroundings close to the South Downs, near to Storrington.

We are a very small school and as such we know that all our staff have a very personal knowledge of every child and there is a real family atmosphere in the school.  We ensure that, whatever a child's abilities, our teaching is tailored to ensure that they advance and grow. We understand the importance of every day in each child's life and we believe that all our children have the right to the best possible learning experiences during their time with us. This is done through a range of academic and extra curricular activities such as Forest Schools, sports and creative activities.

We are a ‘Voluntary Controlled’ School which means that the Church of England maintains an active interest in the school whilst giving overall control to the Local Authority.  Amberley School has a high reputation for its caring, inclusive family ethos based on Christian values.  The Governors are all fully involved in the school’s life and we are also continually grateful for the wonderful help given to us by the parents and the wider community.

If you are looking for a school that has care and concern for children as individuals together with a strong family ethos, please do not hesitate to get in touch and arrange a visit.  We look forward to seeing you.

We hope you will find the information contained in this website both helpful and interesting, giving you clear insight into school life.
