Welcome to Pound Hill Infant Academy

At Pound Hill Infant Academy we are extremely proud of our welcoming and inspiring school where we strive to ensure that all our pupils reach their potential. We are a large infant school with 270 pupils, located in Crawley, West Sussex. We treat every child as an individual and provide a happy, engaging and thriving environment where children flourish. We offer exciting learning experiences which have creativity at the heart, balancing the teaching of knowledge and skills and encouraging innovation. All our children are expected to be responsible members of their community, understanding and respecting everyone’s rights, different values and traditions and are encouraged to play an active role in the development of our school. Our overall vision is that all members of our community are happy, confident children; resilient, successful learners; and empathic, respectful individuals.
