Public Primary Schools in Chichester

We are currently living in Australia but we're thinking about moving back to the UK. I am grew up in West Sussex (Worthing) but haven't lived there for years. I really like Chichester and it's quite central to where all my friends are located.

We would prefer to stay as central to Chichester as possible as my husband would commute from the train station and I like being close to where there's some life but would consider surrounding areas that aren't too far away. Possibly Tangmere or Westhampnett? I'd be interested to know what those areas are like. I've heard/read that areas further out towards Barnham and Bognor may be a bit 'rough'?

I am looking into public primary schools (non catholic/church) for my two boys. My eldest is 6 and currently in year 1. My youngest would be due to start school in September if we move back before then. So some information on some good schools would be useful.

Any information/tips would be appreciated.

You might want to have a look at Aldingbourne Primary or Jessie Younghusband Primary - both schools have their own websites. There is quite a good choice of primaries, but less choice at secondary - particularly if you want to avoid schools with church links.

Friends of mine are very pleased with Chichester Free School. Bear in mind that it is still fairly new (3 yrs in operation) and is not yet on its permanent site, for which planning permission has just been granted.
