    About Horley Infant School

    Horley Infant School has a rich history dating back to 1864. Since then it has been adapted to provide ten modern, well equipped classrooms, each possessing an extensive range of resources to facilitate and extend the children’s learning. These include interactive whiteboards, visualisers, laptops and tablets with software designed for each year group to access. Each classroom also has a book corner and an art area.

    The school also has a separate room for small group work and a large entrance hall containing a well stocked central library. The school also benefits from a recently extended hall equipped with climbing apparatus. The school is situated on a spacious site with a large playground to the rear. Also to the rear of school is a playing field, an all weather field and a very popular Adventure Trail.

    For those preferring some quiet spaces there is a pond, a gazebo and other shaded areas for children to enjoy. Recently constructed vegetable plots enable children to enjoy and learn from growing their own produce. Adjacent to this area is our newly constructed Forest Schools area which enables children in Year One to develop a variety of skills whilst learning with our Forest Schools teacher
