NEARS

NETWORK OF EASTERN AREA RURAL SCHOOLS (NEARS)

Balcombe School is a member of the NEARS Group, along with nine other local village schools;

  • Albourne CE Primary School
  • Bolney CEP School
  • Handcross Primary School
  • St Augustines, Scaynes Hill
  • St Mark's, Staplefield
  • St Peters', Ardingly
  • Twineham CE Primary School
  • Warninglid Primary School
  • St Giles CE Primary School, Horsted Keynes

Being a member has many advantages for us as a small rural school; it provides a greater range of learning activities for our children, provides us with additional shared resources, it allows children to mix socially with children from other village schools and also helps with staff and school development.
