Mr Jon Goulding Headteacher

Welcome to
Grovelands Community Primary School

Welcome to our school website. Grovelands School has been serving the Hailsham community since 1934 and we are very proud of our wonderful school building and surrounding grounds.

This is enhanced by the school’s happy ethos and welcoming atmosphere, pupils at the school are given the opportunity to explore their talents in a number of ways whether that be academically, on the sports’ field or in our wide variety of performing arts.

Grovelands School is a very inclusive school and we are proud to have children of all abilities at the school and enjoy seeing everyone develop as a member of the school community. The ethos of the school and our slogan of ‘Believe, Create, Achieve’, is based on encouraging all children to achieve excellence through challenge and a belief in themselves. This is supported by a staff team who drive and aspire for the best.

I hope that this website will give you a flavour of Grovelands and a desire to come and see us for yourself.
