Storrington Primary


We have an outstanding Governing body made up of Local Authority, Community and Parent Governors.   Governors are volunteers who want to make a positive contribution to children's education.   The values and vision for leading the school are shared between the Governing body, Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team (SLT).   The day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and staff.   

West Sussex information about the role of School Governors can be found here,  if you are interested in applying to become a governor please contact Clerk to Governors on 01903 742047 or


Welcome to parents from Storrington First School Governors.
