Lorraine School and Nursery is an Infant School catering for children aged 4 to 7 years and a Nursery for children from 2 years old. We are a vibrant, happy learning community, committed to success and continuous improvement. We create a safe and happy environment where children are excited about their learning and are self-motivated to reach their highest possible potential.
Parents thinking of choosing Lorraine School for their children are welcome to arrange a visit to look around the school. As part of our commitment to ensure your child is confident and happy when they start school we invite you to a meeting to explain the arrangements for his/her induction and to share any information you may wish us to know. We feel it is important that the children make several visits to the school prior to commencement as this makes the transition to school so much easier.
Lorraine school is surrounded on the most part by common land and has spacious, light and airy accommodation on two floors. The superb grounds include a trim trail, and a large playground and field. The school also has a wonderful nature garden with a pond, minibeast area, flower and vegetable gardens, meadow area and raised sensory beds.
Lorraine maintains a close relationship with the local Junior Schools, Cordwalles, Connaught, Hammond, The Watchetts, Ravenscote and Crawley Ridge, which makes for an easy move from Infant to Junior School. Members of staff from the local Junior Schools liaise with Lorraine staff regularly throughout the school year. The Junior School teachers visit Lorraine in the Summer Term. They meet the children who will be joining them from Year 2 and also talk to the Class Teacher.
The school was built on part of the site of a Free French Camp established during the 2nd World War. General de Gaulle visited the camp, in fact he was frequently seen in Camberley and later gave his permission for the school to bear the name of 'Lorraine' and to have the Cross of Lorraine as part of its badge. In June 2005 surviving members of the Free French Lorraine 342 Squadron visited Camberley and presented a plaque to the school, which can be found in our hall.
