Welcome to Willingdon Primary School

Based at the foot of the South Downs just outside of Eastbourne, we are a school that prides itself on our excellent reputation and school diversity. We believe in working together as a school community to achieve the best results. Both our pupils and staff are encouraged and inspired to achieve their best potential.


We endeavour to provide an enjoyable, enriched educational experience that is both meaningful and relevant to every child and to develop personal qualities that provide a sound foundation for the future. All those concerned with the school share these beliefs.


Take your time to look around our school website. You will find both information about our school and extra curricular activities, alongside copies of important documents and other information you or your child may need throughout the school year.

Towner In Bloom


We are very proud of the children in year one who took part in the Towner art gallery 'Towner in Bloom' competition, especially Ned, Pheobe, (etc) who represented our school on Friday at the gallery. Competition was tough but we came a very, very close 2nd place!  


Well done to the children for a fabulous design based on Eric Ravilious work that they have been studying this term and thank you to parents who attended the results ceremony. Towner later commented on their Facebook page that they 'Recognised the inspiration in the design straight away'!  


We will be back next year to claim first place!  

Year 6 PGL

The year 6 children have had a highly successful time at PGL in Windmill Hill. Activities have included, trapeze, abseiling, aeroball, sensory trail, giant swing, tunnel trail, all aboard, zipwire, fencing, climbing and a groovy disco to celebrate our last night at PG 


The Team and I are so pleased with the children’s behaviour, attitude, manners and general enthusiasm which has been commented upon by the PGL staff.


Thank you to Mrs Watkins for the amazing photographs!

Parent View


We are currently seeking your views of the school through the Ofsted Parent View questionnaire. It consists of 12 short questions and takes no time at all to complete.


If you have completed this before, please log in and check your views reflect how you feel about the school now. We encourage each parent or carer in the family to submit their own views, as the more valuable opinions we have, the better we can perform for your child. 


Please remember that Ofsted strongly encourage that the first point of contact regarding any complaints or issues should be with us here at the school.
