The three primary schools work closely together sharing expertise and good practices, supporting each other's strengths.The school currently has an Interim Executive Board (IEB) in place to provide expertise, support and capacity to the school.

Peacehaven Heights is larger than average with a nursery in house; it is a split site school and is two form entry. The school is very popular with very few spare places throughout. Currently on roll there are approximately 450 pupils including nursery. Our pupils are delightful, behave well and are excited about their learning.
