Steyning Grammar School is a very old school indeed, and I was lucky enough to study here. A school has existed on the site in Church Street since 1584. In 1614 more land and buildings were bequeathed by William Holland
In 1953 the modern Shooting Field site was opened by the Duke of Wellington and provided learning for over 400 children. In 1966 a boarding house was opened.
In 1968 it became a comprehensive school but retained the grammar in it's name.
In 1994 the dedicated 6th form centre was opened for A level students, named after Tony Russell the late deputy head.
I highly reccomend you wander down to Church Street and hav e alook at the timber framed buildings. The two classrooms on the 1st floor are stil used today. The rooms downstairs are used as a library.
The rest of the buildings used by the school at the Church Street site and Shooting Field site aren't really worth your while to be honest, because they are modern and have no real style.

Rubbish Tennis courts can hired from Steyning Sports Centre ,they have nice wooden boundaries between the courts but the concrete surface itself falling apart.
Equipment: A Tennis racquet and possibly a nifty headband.
Favorite thing: Just outside Steyning is the village of Wiston that has a very good B&B and a wonderful Tea Room and Garden
