Schoolsworks Community Primary Littlehampton

The Secretary of State for Education approved the application of Schoolsworks Academy Trust to open a brand new primary school in north Littlehampton back in 2016.  Since then, we have been in the "pre-opening phase" whilst the housing development in the Toddington area has been progressing. Currently, legal arrangements between the developers, the local authority and the Department for Education are also in process.  

Although it is taking longer than we had hoped, we are excited to have the opportunity to open a new school, whose working title is Schoolsworks Community Primary Littlehampton.  It will offer:

  • A brand new building with brand new resources
  • Excellent teaching staff who know the Littlehampton area and community
  • An open invitation for any pupil to enroll
  • Places for 420 children aged 4 - 11 when full plus a nursery


A site for Schoolsworks Community Primary Littlehampton has been identified on the new Persimmon building development (see map below)


  • The earliest possible opening date for Schoolsworks Community Primary Littlehampton is September 2022
  • If this is the case we will publish our first prospectus in Spring 2021
  • In its first year, the plan is for Schoolsworks Community Primary Littlehampton to open with a nursery offering 32 places for 2–4 year olds and two reception classes offering places for 60 pupils in total
  • The school would then grow year on year to become a two-form through primary school for pupils aged 4 – 11
