Chesswood

Chesswood Junior School

Chesswood is a large Junior school of 640 children that is situated in East Worthing. We are a diverse school with around 20% of children having English as an additional language and we celebrate diversity and the range of cultures that exist locally. The school is a short walk from the seafront and opportunities to explore coastal habitats, landscape or architecture feature within the school curriculum. Our year 3 classes explore the evidence of Saxon settlements and mining in Cissbury Ring and the surrounding area. Being fairly central, we have a town trail as part of year 5 History, where children can learn about Georgian and Victorian aspects of the town and how it has changed over time. We are excited to be working with the Friends of the South Downs.
