Eco Schools

The Federation of Abinger Common and Westcott C of E Schools have set up a new Eco Committee and are just starting a project on saving energy.

A Green Day was held on both sites with children taking part in a number of activities during the day.


School Council

We are planning a disco and mufti day for Children in Need.  We aim to be spotty and have spotty biscuits!


Feeling Good Week Questionnaire Responses

During ‘Feel Good Week’ we all completed a questionnaire to find out how happy, healthy and safe everyone felt in school.

We will use the answers to help make sure everyone continues to be happy, healthy and safe in Surrey Hills C of E Primary School.


We are very proud of our new school uniforms. Everyone looks extremely smart.

We are looking forward to learning in our new classrooms.
