We are a popular, inclusive and friendly school for children aged 7 to 11 years old (years 3 to 6.) We are part of the Schoolsworks Academy Trust and enjoy working with like-minded professionals to provide the best for our children.
Situated in the beautiful coastal village of East Preston, in between Littlehampton and Worthing, we want everyone to be happy, learn and enjoy coming to school.
At East Preston Junior School (EPJS), we aim to provide a meaningful and enjoyable educational experience enabling all children to reach their potential. We want the children to enjoy what they are doing and to do the best that they can (aiming for excellence).
Additionally, we provide a caring and nurturing environment to allow our children to become well rounded, resilient and confident individuals. We see our partnership with parents and carers as vital in achieving this aim.

“I don’t really like the way the door opens straight into the kitchen on this side of the road.
If they do something about that it would be really good.” Another resident, who asked not to be named, said he did nor feel there was anything wrong with the homes – but there should be attention to the verges which have turned to mud caused by cars parking on them.
