School Details

Our school is a wonderful place for learning to develop. The school has a long and interesting
history having been built between April 1937 and June 1938, meaning that last year we
celebrated our eightieth anniversary. We first welcomed pupils on the 30th August 1938 as Earls
Hall Infants and Earls Hall Juniors. There were originally 135 children on roll in the infants with a
further 155 pupils in the juniors. Nowadays we are home to 630 lovely pupils spanning seven
year groups.
The school building is made up of two floors. The Key Stage One and Foundation Stage classes
are based on the lower floor whilst the Key Stage Two classes are predominantly situated on the
upper floor. There are two classrooms used by Year Four downstairs situated at the back of the
school.
The layout of the building is fairly traditional with the classrooms based alongside the corridor on
each level. Our spacious building consists of twenty one classrooms as well as several
communal areas, a community room, a small nurture room for each key stage, medical rooms,
cloakroom facilities, office administration areas and two large halls. We are fortunate to have a
separate building which houses a large kitchen and a dining hall used by children from Years
Two to Six at lunchtime. On site we also house a fantastic swimming pool and the cabin; PE
changing rooms for upper key stage two pupils.
Our grounds are spacious and used by all year groups every day. The front of the school offers a
small but exciting wooded area which is used by Foundation Stage and Key Stage One for
‘Forest Friends’ sessions every week and Years Three and Four each half term. Out the back of
the school there are three large playground areas and a wonderfully spacious field. The
playgrounds are zoned into age specific areas although we have one area which can be used by
children of any year group to socialise.
We pride ourselves in creating and maintaining a clean, bright, safe and stimulating learning
environment and are continually investigating ways to improve and enhance our unique and
historic building.
