St Robert Southwell is a Catholic, Voluntary Aided Primary school in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. We serve the parish of St John the Evangelist in Horsham. The Governors aim to offer a distinctively Catholic education for children from 4 years to 11 years of age. They expect parents to uphold the Catholic character and ethos of the school. These expectations are reflected in our Admissions Policy, which gives full details of the criteria we apply when admitting children into the school.
