Old Pixham School
Old Pixham School is an attractive late Victorian building of traditional design at the heart of Pixham. Read some of its history here.
Most recently an annexe of St Martin's School in Dorking, it is now rented from the Guildford Diocese and managed by Old Pixham School C.I.C. for the Pixham community. As well as being used for Pixham Residents Association activities such as regular film and quiz nights, monthly coffee mornings, the table tennis club, pop-up pubs and the summer fete, it is available for hire for events such as children's or family parties, classes and training events for not more than about 35 people.
Beyond the entrance lobby (with toilets off - including toilet for the disabled with table for baby changing, etc) there are two carpeted rooms separable with a folding partition, the larger being approx. 5 x 10 metres, and the smaller approx. 5 x 6 metres. There is a kitchen of domestic proportions, with sink, cooker, fridge, kettle and hot water urn. Chairs and tables are available. There is a small carpark at the front of the school with space for up to 9 cars, and a walled, surfaced playground at the rear.
