History of Sackville School


Sackville School in East Grinstead was founded in 1859 as an alternative to the town’s grammar school. It was much needed, according to local historian W.H. Hills: “For those who would not or could not get accommodation at the Grammar School, there was no alternative but to walk to Forest Row, and many lads did so.” The school was paid for by public donations and built on De la Warr Road, with the site and much of the money being provided by Countess Amherst, of the wealthy Sackville family. She was too modest to name the school after her own relatives, and it didn’t take their name until 1951. In the mid 1960s Sackville School moved to its current site on Lewes Road, and it went comprehensive in 1970. It now has over 1,600 pupils.
