The school was established in 1974 to provide for the children in the growing Northlands Wood Estate. In response to growing numbers the building was extended in 1987. We have been in our new accommodation since September 2010.
We cater for children from 4 to 11 years. Our current school community extends beyond the original estate and we have welcomed children from other areas of Haywards Heath and its environs.
In 2017 Sussex Learning Trust welcomed Northlands Wood Primary Academy (NWPA) as a new partner converting and joining Sussex Learning Trust. Benefiting from collaboration and excellent leadership at all levels, NWPA is another extremely strong academy.
