Built in 1798, privately owned, Lord & Lady Warender owned the house from 1906 to 1955 .East Sussex County Council bought it. Then opened for an agricultural boarding school 1956-1972.

Mt name is Tim Burgess, I was one of the first nine boy boarders at Leasam when it opened. Mr Anderson was the principle. I believe the year was 1955. I would like to hear from any of the other eight if you come across them.

I thought it was Admiral Warender and his wife. In the 1980s it was part of the Thomas Peacock school - did you board?
