Welcome to Fairway Infant School

On behalf of all the teaching and support staff, I would like to welcome you to our school website. It is designed to give you a little ‘taster’ of our school and it contains a lot of useful information for parents/carers.

Fairway Infant School is situated in the village of Copthorne, close to East Grinstead in West Sussex. We are a two-form entry school with classes ranging from Reception to Year 2. We strive to ensure that our children are happy and enjoy coming into school each day. We aim to provide an exciting and stimulating environment where children are motivated to learn. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum with a range of activities and opportunities to support the development of curiosity and independence.

If you are a prospective parent looking for a school place for your child then please do come and have a look around and meet the staff and children. We warmly welcome visits to the school and appointments can be made by contacting the school office.
