Church of England Junior School

History of the School

Our School was founded in 1865 in the Bolton Chapel of St. Mary's parish church before moving to our present site in 1866, which was land given by Lord Bolton.

Originally a primary school serving the local community, numbers rapidly grew in the intervening century and in the early 1970s the local education authority built a new infant school, just down the road.

As a Church of England Voluntary Aided school in the Diocese of Winchester we retain very close links with the Church, and our Vicar takes a weekly Act of Worship with the whole school, and regular Eucharist services are held at school and in Church.
