Camelsdale School was originally built in 1904, and is the oldest West Sussex County Council school. It was modernised in 1964 and then again in 2004/05.
The school has seven classrooms, a large hall, group room, library, offices, quiet room, Music studio and staffroom.
In 2009, as part of our reorganisation to become a primary school, the old original classrooms and main corridor were completely refurbished and a new entrance hall, lobby, children’s kitchen and cloakroom added on. There are two tarmac playgrounds and a large playing field with a wonderful view.
Camelsdale also boasts a superb “Secret Garden” with a large pond, outdoor museum, fire circle, outdoor classroom, and eco green-roof shed.
We have installed challenging adventure play trails, an orchard, safer surfacing, a playhouse and a bebop tower with slide. The children enjoy playing in the boat, train and around the amphitheatre. The Millennium Courtyard is a quiet area, whilst the path around the entire field lends itself to plenty of running and cycling. The young children think we have a magnificent garden to play in and the maze is extremely popular!
