Our Village

As a Community Primary Academy, we are very proud of our links with the local community, particularly within our village of Lindfield.

Annual Lindfield Village Day

Every June we join the rest of our local community to celebrate Lindfield Village Day with a procession through the village alongside other local groups. At Blackthorns we are particularly proud of our achievements and have won 1st prize for the last 14 consecutive years. 


Every year on Remembrance Sunday, representatives of the school attend the Lindfield Remembrance Service, with members of our Year 6 class reading during the service and laying a poppy wreath alongside other local community groups and schools.

Sharing our musical talent

The children of Blackthorns School are often invited to sing to members of the community, such as the Lunch Club at the United Reformed Church and at a residential home in the village.
