Why Billingshurst?

The school is located in Billingshurst, a delightful rural village lying 8 miles to the south-west of the town of Horsham, in West Sussex, England. 

A number of staff choose to live in the village of Billingshurst itself, whilst others take advantage of the excellent road and rail links and travel to the school from a wide range of nearby towns and villages. The school itself is very conveniently situated less than a 2 minute walk from Billingshurst railway station.

One of the significant attractions of the location of The Weald School, is that it combines the benefits of immediate access to some of the most beautiful countryside in England, whilst also being within easy reach of the some of the most vibrant and historic cities, such as Brighton, Guildford and Chichester - all reached in less than 30 minutes. The city of London can easily be reached by train in just over an hour.

For staff choosing to live in Billingshurst itself, the village Primary School is located right next to The Weald School and there is also an independently run childcare centre on site.
