Hollington is a Primary Academy, which is part of the University of Brighton Academies Trust, for children aged between 2+ and 11+ years of age. Currently we have about 420 children on roll, including those in the Nursery. We make full use of our great facilities to enable us to bring the best out of our children. 

This is a fantastic primary academy with amazing children, parents and staff who are all committed to our academy vision of ‘Think Big’ to ensure our children get the very best start in life. Helping children to develop a love of learning is our core purpose and we pride ourselves on our strong relationships with all members of our community.

At Hollington we all ‘Think Big’ because the sky’s the limit! We believe, if you believe, then there is nothing to stop you.
