Both Warlingham School and De Stafford school are the closest options for Secondary education and both have very good reputations.  There are several private education schools around the area with Caterham School, just under 2 miles away and Woldingham Girls School approx. 5 miles away.


There are plenty of things to do for those who love the great outdoors.  Whyteleafe has its own Recreation Ground which is a large and diverse park.   With a children’s play area, tennis courts, an outside keep fit area, the Pavilion café and an events space. The hills that rise from the park lead to a greater open space of chalk grassland.

The Whyteleafe Tavern, a historic pub with a cozy atmosphere and delicious food, is in the heart of the village, along with The Radius Arms, a popular micro-brewery selling cask beers and ales. 


Whyteleafe was a sparsely populated area until the railway opened in 1856.  The village name is believed to have come from the distinctive white underside of the whitebeam trees that were growing in the area. 

The church of St Luke was built in 1866.  The churchyard contains several graves of airmen who died during WWII, stationed at nearby RAF Kenley.
