Cradle Hill School is situated on the northern side of Seaford, about a mile from the town centre. It has approximately 430 children on role. The children enter the school at 4+ and leave at 11 years of age. The school has 14 class bases: two parallel classes for each year group.

Cradle Hill is built on a six-acre site, has three large playgrounds and a large playing field. The school is fortunate in having a heated swimming pool with good changing facilities, the result of close co-operation between the PTFA and the Local Authority. The school buildings are generously proportioned and include two large halls that are used for dining purposes as well as PE, drama, music etc. The school has a 16 PC computer suite adjacent to a non-fiction reference library.
