Our History

Greenfields School was founded on the 13th of July 1981 by educator Margaret Hodkin, in response to a grassroots demand for a school utilising the educational discoveries of Mr L Ron Hubbard.

It started off in a small vicarage in a village called Hammerwood not far from its current location in Forest Row, to where it moved in 1983.

Beginning with just three classes, Infants, Juniors and Seniors, it has evolved over the years to become a remarkable school providing services for pupils ranging in age from 2 years to 18 years.

It has been a member of the Independent School’s Association for most of its history, and in more recent years has become a recognised centre for the delivery of the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the more recently founded Prince William Award.

The school is also a centre for the delivery of the Cambridge University Framework of Study in English Maths and Science all the way through from Year 1 to the Sixth Form. Word of its successful approach has been spreading and it is now expanding its facilities in order to meet the increased demand for its services.
