To Know,

Welcome to All Saints and St Richard’s Church of England Primary School. We are a small school based in the rural village of Old Heathfield.

The Victorian listed frontage of the building screens the modern, spacious classrooms that sit behind this; a lovely mix of old and new.

As a small school we get to know each child as an individual therefore strengths are built upon and weaknesses supported. We make the most of our beautiful setting with weekly outdoor learning and Forest School sessions.

At ASSR we believe that children thrive in an environment in which they are happy, challenged and secure. We aim to provide the best primary education in a stimulating and creative environment, so that every child realises his or her potential.

New parents are welcome to come and visit us at any time by making an appointment with the school office. Download our Prospectus and Forest School Handbook.
