About Weald School
About the School
The Weald serves the local community from a pleasant 25 acre site on the edge of Billingshurst. Our size offers us many advantages: we have excellent facilities, allowing us to offer a wide and varied range of academic and vocational courses at all levels. The Weald campus has been steadily improved in recent years. The Learning Resource Centre and Music block were built in the late 1990s, followed by the floodlit all-weather astro-turf pitch. A building project was completed a few years ago and provided seven new Science laboratories (with six more being fully refurbished), eight new classrooms, purpose-built Business Studies rooms and a new Sixth Form Centre. There is a swimming pool and fitness centre (adjoining the school site and run by D C Leisure / Horsham District Council), and two multi-use games areas.
During the last few years the school has undergone another significant refurbishment programme which has greatly further enhanced facilities at the school. Work carried out included provision of additional purpose-built ICT rooms, a new central administration area and modernised reception area, re-vamping of student toilets, the provision of a purpose-built Drama suite and specialist Music Technology facilities, and security provision around the site.
The Weald School offers all students:
- A well-planned, broad and balanced curriculum
- A record of excellent examination results
- Well qualified specialist staff combining innovative and traditional methods in the classroom
- A secure, supportive, encouraging and happy environment
- A wide range of extra-curricular and residential activities.
