What's going on in school?

Archaeologists beware!

We’re after your jobs!!  After learning earlier in the year in our Anglo Saxons and Romans topics about how important archaeology is, the children in Year 3/4 got to experience a real life archaeological dig at Harmony Woods in Andover.

They met with archaeologist, Chris, and learned about the health & safety of being onsite, how to dig and what is important and what isn’t.

Getting ready to welcome new faces

The deadline for admissions has already passed and places allocated.  We were delighted to be oversubscribed and will admit a full cohort of 15 children into our Robins class in September 2025.  Our catchment is relatively small so we often attract families from outside our geographical boundaries and this year is no exception with a number of families coming from surrounding villages and Augusta Park on the north west of Andover.

Our transition process begins in late May/early June with home visits by the class teacher and LSA who take this time to get to know the children well and find out their likes, dislikes, worries and also to answer critical questions from parents, many of whom are sending their first child into school.  We then continue with in school visits, pre-school visits and packs of information as well as a summer challenge. We can’t wait to meet you all!

We’re moving on!

The beginning of the end has arrived and it’s marked with the annual Year 6 leaver’s service at Winchester Cathedral along with hundreds of other Year 6 children from across the Winchester and Portsmouth diocese.  The day consisted of a series of workshops which encouraged children to reflect on their school journey in the last 7 years and it culminated with a beautiful service which superb singing from all of the children in an attempt to raise the roof!

We have a fun packed end of term for Year 6 as they emabrk on what are now, rites of passage, for our children as their time at primary school comes to a close.
