This attractive primary school is sited at the heart of the village of Turners Hill. The majority of the children that attend the school come from Turners Hill village. It has developed strong links with, and is well supported by, the community. At age 11 the majority of pupils transfer to Imberhorne School in East Grinstead.

Turners Hill School was originally built in 1877.In August 1988, work was completed on a major building project.
The old building was re-designed inside and a substantial extension added. This project meant that accommodation was completely upgraded, and is virtually a new school. In 1991, another new classroom was added.
The school has five classrooms, a music room, a practical room, a hall, a library area and from September 2003, a mezzanine teaching area. The school has an ‘outside classroom’ which consists of a small wood, a small orchard, a vegetable growing area, a ‘Bugs Hotel’ and Sensory garden and an area for hens, as well as areas for creative development.
Situated within the school grounds is our preschool called Turners Hill Tots led by the Turners Hill C of E Primary School Governing Body. The group is open every morning, each week, during term time and works very closely with Maple Class and is very much a part of our school.
