Rother Valley Locality of Schools
Camelsdale Primary School is one of sixteen rural primary schools within the Rother Valley.
This covers 450 square miles of beautiful, rural West Sussex and creates an outstanding learning environment within which to educate your child. Children in the Rother Valley are often taught through a Forest School’s approach to teaching and learning.
The Rother Valley Locality all work together with a shared ‘Locality Development Plan’. We see the children’s learning journey as a continuous one from 0-25…Every Child Matters in The Rother Valley. Our curriculum, our approach to teaching and learning, and our staffing, all support this approach and ensure the children’s learning is indeed as personalised and as high a quality as possible. Together…we achieve and expect more.
After Camelsdale … where next?
Midhurst Rother College is a United Learning Academy (an independently managed specialist state school) which serves students from 11 to 18 years of age situated in the town of Midhurst. The aim of the College is that it will be a place where:
- Students are free to achieve, belong and contribute;
- Students feel safe, happy and valued;
- Teachers can teach and students can learn in the very best
- Extracurricular activities and taking on responsibility are an
important part of everyday life;
- Parents play a significant role in the education and wider College
life of their children;
- Students move on to higher education, further education or top
In brief, the College will foster a deep sense of belonging whilst encouraging a high level of achievement for all its students. The core strength of Midhurst Rother College is enhanced by the support it gains from sponsorship and partnership. The United Learning Trust (ULT), an educational charity that is the country’s largest single sponsor of academies, brings total devotion to ensuring young people in their schools succeed. ULT’s wealth of experience and skill is directed to ensuring the highest outcomes are achieved by each of its schools. The College is also in partnership with the University of Chichester and Winchester College. Our students will have access to the resources and staff of these prestigious institutions and in doing so they will have their aspirations raised and their chances of future success increased.
