Handcross Primary


We have a specialist French teacher, Vanessa Samandi, who comes from Warden Park Secondary Academy  to teach the children French weekly in the junior school.

Vanessa is a french native speaker, and has been teaching French in Sussex for the past 21 years, mostly as a secondary school teacher. The children benefit hugely from her expertise and secondary schools are always very impressed by the high standards of French speaking from Handcross Primary School children.
