I am delighted to introduce you to our lovely school, where we are proud of our warm, welcoming "family" feel and our ethos of care. We want our children's first experience of school to be positive and rewarding, and for them to be happy, safe and secure enough to thrive in our care. We are passionate about inspiring lifelong learning through a rich and inspiring curriculum and a range of enriching opportunities.
We are situated within the village of Marchwood on the outskirts of the New Forest and benefit from expansive grounds, with opportunities to learn in every corner. We welcome applications from families situated both within and outside of the local area.
We recognise that choosing a school for your child is an important decision and we hope you will find the information on these pages useful.
If you have any further questions, please do get in touch. We look forward to welcoming you to Marchwood!
