What the school says...

Academy convertor - September 2011, a merger between Filsham Valley School and The Grove. Sponsored by East Sussex la, BT and the University of Brighton.

Filsham Valley School was inspected in March 2005 and was found to be an improving school. The headteacher's leadership was described as 'very good'. We are pioneering curriculum development work in the locality and are developing a distinctive business and enterprise character. We are fully inclusive and also have a special facility for pupils with sensory and physical needs.

Our school is a modern and forward looking school with an enthusiastic and united staff team. We are committed to 'succeeding together' and 'releasing entrepreneurial potential'. Filsham is Flying!!

Filsham Valley School is going to be merged with The Grove and replaced by an academy. This will be sponsored by East Sussex la, BT and the University of Brighton.
