School Background

Harlands County Primary School opened in 1964. It is situated on the north-western edge of Haywards Heath. The main school entrance is signposted and is in the centre of the building. We currently have around 420 pupils in 14 classes.

Our classrooms are spacious and most overlook the school grounds. Each is equipped for ICT and linked to our computer network. In addition we have a large multi-purpose hall, a computer suite, a studio and two libraries.

There are fourteen classes of around thirty children together with their teacher and teaching assistants. There are two classes in each age group from age 4 to age 11, with all now housed in the main building, and with the Infant and Junior parts of the school separated by the school hall and office suite.

The school grounds are very beautiful and are bordered by mature woodland. There are three playgrounds; children in the Early Years Department have their own outside play area complete with a lawn and shady trees. We also have a large playing field suitable for a range of sporting activities, and benefit from the adjacent spacious playing field of Sussex Central College.

The whole site is secluded and away from traffic, surrounded by trees and private gardens. The school’s attractive natural environment is home to many species of wildlife (particularly birds, rabbits and squirrels) and the Friends of Harlands have provided the children with a safely fenced pond and garden area.

Sue Towns, a former teacher at Harlands, has written an excellent history of Harlands School to celebrate the fortieth anniversary in 2004, which may be obtained from the School Office.

The main historical highlights are available here.
