I warmly welcome you to our family of St Mary’s Junior School. Whether you are thinking of joining us as part of our Year 2 transition or part of the way through Key Stage 2, I am sure that as you spend time looking at our website you will, like us, be excited about all of the opportunities our school has to offer.
We are proud to be a voluntary aided church school in the Dioceses of Winchester and have strong links with our parish church of St Mary’s. The school originally started in the Bolton Chapel of the church in 1865 and to this day remains at the heart of the village community.
Our core Christian value of love, in the form of One Family, underpins everything we do in school. Whilst we believe in excellence in all aspects of school life and individual excellence is recognised and valued, we believe that through a focus on love by working together as part of a strong and supportive family, we can all achieve more – socially, emotionally and academically. You can read more about our Christian Values here.
Our curriculum offers opportunities for all children to learn creatively, explore and enquire, encouraging them to think deeply about their learning. Staff work hard as a team, reviewing progress and exploring new strategies to capture the energy and enthusiasm of young learners in order to inspire them to develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime.
We believe in nurturing talent and have developed an extensive range of extra-curricular activities providing opportunities for each and every child to excel. Many of these opportunities have proved to be a stepping stone to participation at County, National and even International level.
We are extremely proud of our school and would be delighted to welcome you as part of our extended family.
We look forward to meeting you.
Mrs G Lillywhite
