Covid 19


My name is Mr Allen and I have the honour of being the Head of Bodiam House at the Ashdown Primary Junior site.







Stay tuned for the announcement of our 2023/2024 house captains for this year!





Bodiam were awesome last year in all the inter house competitions. Can we keep it up this year?

Lets aim for back to back sports day champions too :)



Bodiam were fabulous on Sports day and we were thrilled to be the overall winners.  Everyone tried really hard and the teamwork and support that the children showed was a pleasure to see.  Well done everyone, especially Bodiam.

Inter-house Competitions 2022-23

Term 3 Inter-house Chess competition results

After an exciting and nail-biting chess tournament this term, the results are in!

1st: Matthew (Hever) 25 house points

2nd: Jessica (Scotney) 20 house points

3rd: Harry (Bodiam) 15 house points

4th: Alfie (Arundel) 10 house points

Congratulations to Matthew for winning, he played brilliantly, and to Harry for representing our house so admirably.

The value this term has been opportunity, and SO MANY children have taken the opportunity to learn how to play chess just so they can take part. A few have started developing a real passion for chess following this tournament too which is a fabulous outcome

A collage of photos from the tournament have been posted on Arundel's webpage, so please take a look and continue to support our house competitions. 


Scotney's term 2 inter-house 'Winter art' competition

After receiving some absolutely wonderful artistic contributions, the Scotney house captains chose the following four finalists:

Olivia - Arundel

Skye - Bodiam

Darcey - Scotney

Charlie - Hever

And the overall winner was Olivia from Arundel. Congratulations and well done if you took part in this close fought competition.


Term 1 Inter-house competition- results
In term 1, it was Bodiam's turn to run the inter-house competition.  This was in the form of a spelling bee using the year 3 and 4 and 5 and 6 spelling lists. 
It was a close-run contest and Mr Gray and I really enjoyed our week of lunchtime spelling spectaculars with the children.  In lower Key Stage 2, Arundel topped the table followed by Hever, then Scotney and finally Bodiam.  In upper Key Stage 2, Hever were victorious followed by Bodiam, Arundel and then Scotney.  When the points were added together there was a clear and well deserving winning house. 
Congratulations go to Hever with special mentions for Isla and Hayden who were fabulous and really impressed with their spelling success.
