Why Lewes New School?

This is a school where people matter. Our human-centred ethos puts the dreams, opinions and interests of each child right at the heart of school life.

Lewes New School is different because we trust children to learn. We cultivate each child’s curiosity and inspire their imagination, rather than constrain their thinking or creativity within the limits of an imposed curriculum.

Our approach is innovative but our school has a homely feel that reflects the warmth of our community. We hope you’ll visit the school and see the difference.
