About Our School
Witley C of E Infant School is located in the village of Witley, near Godalming in Surrey. It was established in 1836 as the only school in the entire parish. It benefits from having a beautiful and historic main building, which is both impressive and full of character. The school is officially described as a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School. This means that it is a church school, which is ‘controlled’ in terms of the funding by the Local Education Authority. This differs from a Church Aided School, which is funded by the Diocese.
The building consists of three classrooms, a library, a shared learning resource area, administration office and number of small meeting/group rooms. All classes are very well resourced with high quality equipment. Responsibility for the day-to-day running of the school lies with the Headteacher and Governors.
Our school hall is owned by the local community and we have sole use of it on a daily basis during term time. We hold the majority of our assemblies there and it is well equipped for PE lessons. It is also the place where we meet every day to enjoy our delicious lunches that are all cooked on site. Outside of school hours, the Hall is used by Cubs, Scouts, Guides and Beavers as well as other community groups.
Godalming Learning Partnership
Witley C of E Infant School is one of the Godalming Learning Partnership’s sixteen schools and three Children’s Centres who are working together, in partnership with the local community and beyond. This gives us better access to a wide range of services, activities, clubs and amenities for our children and their families and helps to ensure that everyone can thrive in school.
Most of our pupils continue their education at The Chandler C of E Aided Junior School.
The Chandler Junior School
At the end of Year Two, most of our children will continue their education at The Chandler C of E Aided Junior School. We have strong links between Witley Infants and The Chandler and our children are well supported during their transition.
