Our Learning Spaces

The school possesses a wonderful learning space both inside and out.  Outside we have a large playing field which is used for outdoor games, football, rounders and athletics; a wooded environmental area; a pond and three additional playgrounds with play equipment for specific age groups.

As well as the classrooms, we have junior and infant libraries; two school halls; an art and design technology studio with a kiln; the ‘Dawnay Den’ with a kitchen area; a well equipped ICT suite; a dedicated music room; a language/drama room and a special Year 6 study area.

The location of the school makes it ideal for field studies to Bookham village and the surrounding countryside.  Both Bookham Common and Norbury Park/Polesden Lacey are easily accessible on foot. Where possible, visiting workshops enhance learning and give children first-hand experience.  Recent visitors include The Natural History Museum, Wildlife Centre and Walton Firs Activity Centre.
