Welcome to Shipbourne School
Shipbourne Primary School is a village day school, dating back to 1852. It is a high quality small school and takes great pride in the development and successes of its pupils.
The school consists of two key stage classes, one Infant and one Junior, each with a wide age and ability range. Within these key stage classes, individual year groups and children are taught at a pace to suit them, but with the overall objective of ensuring they achieve to the best level possible for them as individuals.
Our unique way of arranging the curriculum ensures that at the end of their time at school, the children are well prepared for their move to secondary school, and a high proportion of children go on to achieve grammar school places. Whatever path is chosen, the school dedicates itself to helping the children use their individual talents, whether in the arts, sports or science, whether the child is “gifted and talented” or those needing a little extra help. The school aims to ensure that the children develop a lifelong love of learning, with the tools necessary for next stage of their lives and happy memories of their time at school.
Shipbourne School offers an environment where teachers, children and parents see themselves as part of the Shipbourne Community. By dealing with learning, diversity, governance and building community on an intimate level, it plays a unique role in our area.
The school can comfortably accommodate 60 children. If you feel that our school would suit your child's needs, please come and see us, as we would love to show you around!
