Chyngton Primary School - Schools
Chyngton is a happy, thriving and high achieving school located in the east of Seaford, near to Friston Forest and the Seven Sisters Country Park.
We believe that all children should have access to a stimulating and creative curriculum within a warm and positive environment in which confidence and self esteem can flourish. We try hard to enable every child to do their best and to feel proud of themselves and their achievements.
We are fortunate to have very good teaching and learning resources and an attractive school building. Outside resources include a large playground, a school field surrounded by large trees, two adventure play areas, games courts and a swimming pool
Our school has an artsmarkGOLD award in recognition of creative and expressive work and an Activemark award for the quality of physical activity and school sport. Chyngton is the only East Sussex school with a NAACE mark for the outstanding quality of ICT work.
In 2002, the school received a School Achievement Award to recognise the excellent achievements of the pupils.
We welcome visits to the school - just phone the school office for an appointment.
