There aren’t many towns or villages that can boast that their primary school has served the local community for over 300 years, but Holybourne can! Our primary school dates back to the early 1700s and is named after its founder, Thomas Andrews.
Thomas Andrews was a local benefactor who,in November 1719,left money in his will for a primary school to be founded for the children of Holybourne and the surrounding villages.
The beautiful 18th Century School House which was bought with the money from the endowment is still in use today, and tucked behind it is a deceptively large, modern school building with light, airy classrooms and plenty of space for our children to learn and grow. Our school grounds are extensive and we encourage our children to make good use of them. We have a Secret Garden, a variety of allotment beds and planting areas maintained by the children and large, open play spaces. Forest School principles are an important part of our children’s learning experience.
We pride ourselves on being a village school, a church school, and a family school. We are committed to retaining and maintaining the intimate, family-centred ethos of a village school whilst providing a curriculum and learning environment which meets the needs of a 21st Century education. The Christian values of Love, Courage and Respect underpin everything that happens in our school.
We invite you to come and see what makes our school so special.To book a tour of the school, please phone the school office on 01420 83094.
