As Headteacher I am proud to lead an inclusive school with a dedicated staff and a supportive community, committed to providing high standards in education.
The staff and governors of the school believe that it is essential that children work in an atmosphere of high expectation and appropriate challenge. We aim to create and maintain an effective partnership between home and school and develop a shared responsibility for your child's education.
We endeavour to provide a curriculum that is both interesting and motivating and enables children to broaden their knowledge and understanding so that they are fully equipped to succeed in any of the learning challenges that lie ahead of them. We provide a learning environment that promotes excellence and enjoyment, and enriches personal development, providing opportunities for our children to grow into confident citizens who can make a positive contribution to their communities.
Our school is situated within the beautiful countryside of the Hampshire Downs and although located only 3 miles from central Basingstoke, the locality is in contrast to the the town's urban environment.
This website gives essential information about our school and the way we work. There may be many more questions that you have in relation to your own child that are not addressed within this site. Please feel free to contact the school to arrange a time to come and have a look around during the working day and ask about any other information that you might need.
