Visit Our School





Choosing a school for your child is a big decision and one that we would love to support and be part of. It is always advisable to come and have a look at the school as you know your child best and you can discuss their individual needs or requirements. It is also good to see it first hand for yourself and not base your decision on what you have heard or what you might have read- but most importantly on what you see and feel and know about your child. 


If you are looking to send your child to Fairlight to join Reception in September 2019, please contact the school office on 01273 601270 to book to look around the school on one of our very popular Headteacher tours.


The whole family is welcome to come and see the school on a normal hard working and learning day.

Children move schools, circumstances change. As a school we work hard to support children and families through this process and have lots of experience in this area.


Admission enquiries are welcome for children aged 5 -11yrs for our main school and to arrange a visit to the school. Please contact the School Office for details of when you can visit the school as well as if places available for this current year. You will also need to contact Brighton and Hove Admissions https://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/content/children-and-education/school-admissions/school-admissions.


Transfers within a school year may take several weeks to arrange and places are normally allocated for the next available half term. If you are moving house and the house move does not tie in with this timescale you will be able to start school in the middle of the term if a place is available. 


For any children moving school we will need to discuss with parents and also the previous school how to make this experience as positive as possible.




If you are interested in sending your child to Fairlight Nursery, you first need to complete a Nursery Admissions form. These are available from our school office or by clicking here

Applications will be processed by our Early Years Co-Ordinator and you will be contacted by telephone or email once a place becomes available.

Once a place has been allocated, you will be sent a letter asking you to confirm the offer of a place. You will also be invited in to a Come and Play session in the nursery. Prior to your child starting with us, we also carry out a short home visit. This enables us to meet your child in the comfort of their own home and enables us to get any final information from you. The admissions policy can be downloaded from here.

Please be advised, we are only able to offer places to children the term after they are three. All children who start with us at this age are entitled to 15 hours of free Government-funded provision. As of September 2017, some families may be entitled to 30 free hours. To find out if you are eligible for 30 free nursery place hours, please click on this link for more information: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/600592/30_hours_free_childcare_eligibility.pdf
