Our School

Arundel Court Primary Academy & Nursery

Welcome to Arundel Court  Primary Academy & Nursery. We are above average in size with approximately 600 pupils and a nursery onsite.  The school has been part of The University of Chichester Academy Trust since 2017 as a converter academy. We have several buildings on site: 

the Lighthouse, where the majority of our children learn;

the Den, where our pastoral team work to support children and families needing a bit of extra help

the Nursery

the Nest, our small inclusion centre where up to 24 children learn and play together.

We are an inclusive community which challenges and inspires children in a creative and engaging way, laying the foundations for life.

This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information.  We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and find the information you are looking for.  If you would like copies of any of the information on our site, please contact the ladies in the office and they will help you.
