Our award winning Early Years!



Our Early Years Foundation Stage is recognised as being one of the best in Hampshire. Our Leading Foundation Stage Practitioners provide support and advice to other local primary schools looking to develop best practice whilst making sure that our children get off to the best possible start to their school journey. 

Hampshire Education Award


Our Early Years Team were winners of the 'Laying the Foundations' Award at the Hampshire Education Awards in July 2022: The judge  felt that the whole team were outstanding, showing  incredible drive, passion and ambition to implement changes in line with best practice based on educational research to back up their vision for the environment. Through diligently sourcing the right items for their setting, they had enhanced children’s creativity and interests, resulting in very high levels of engagement and ultimately consistently good results leaving the Early Years Foundation Stage, as well as growing well-rounded, independent learners ready for their next stage of education.

Our wonderful Outdoor Learning Area

Our outdoor learning 'village' was created by a team of volunteers with funding from local businesses. Our 'Wondering Woods' have a network of paths that lead to different areas for the children to explore.

The fundraising was coordinated by Four Marks Rotary Club, and was made possible by Blue Badger Property Services who carried out the design and construction work, alongside the generosity of local businesses. 

Watch the transformation!
