School Direct at Heron Way Primary School

Our School

Heron Way Primary School is situated in a residential area on the east side of Horsham.  The school, opened in 1968, was based on an infant school design although it was opened as a primary school.  The accommodation consists of twelve classrooms in the main building and a further three temporary classrooms. In 2013 a substantial building programme started at the school to increase the school’s admission number from 315 to 420. The school now benefits from 2 new halls (separated by a foldable partition) and 4 new classrooms.

We believe there are excellent prospects in teaching; Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) have one of the highest employment rates of all graduates. We offer the School Direct programme as an all-inclusive training programme, providing a sustained school experience throughout the school year and the opportunity to be fully immersed in the school community. We have facilitated a number of school direct placements and are currently employing two of our successful graduates on a full time basis.
