Welcome to our school

After an exhaustive search for the best partner to future-proof this gem of a village school, we have finally joined Rake and Rogate C of E primaries in the Downland Village Schools Federation (DVSF). We believe that small schools can offer something very special to their pupils and local communities, but can gain even more by joining up in manageable groups to create stronger, more sustainable management and teaching teams. Above all, they can give their pupils the real advantages of small village schools combined with the broader skills and resources of bigger schools.

Compton & Up Marden CE School is a small downland school set in an idyllic location with extensive grounds.  Children thrive in a supportive, caring atmosphere where they become self-motivated, independent and confident.

Public transport is available from Westbourne, Rowlands Castle, Forestside and Stansted and a Local Authority mini-bus from Funtington via Watergate, Walderton, Stoughton, East Marden and Up Marden.

The school achieves high academic standards but also provides opportunities to develop creativity through art, music and drama.  Children in Key Stage 2 receive free tuition to play a musical instrument. 

The school works closely with the local parish church and our exciting project for a new hall and splendid additional facilities was successfully opened in 2012.  Two brand new classrooms were also opened in 2017.

To book an appointment to view the school, or request paper copies of documents contained within our website,  please call 02392 631900 and speak to Mrs Carol Crews, our office manager.

Please note we are a nut free school.
