The Federation of Netley Abbey Infant and Junior Schools, formed in 2020, comprises of two delightful schools serving the local community within the Itchen Valley. Both Netley Abbey Infant School and Netley Abbey Junior School share the same site within Hampshire with a variety of contrasting localities nearby; including the coastline, countryside, heritage site, a range of facilities and quiet villages. The shores of the Hamble River are a haven for yachtsmen and the school itself is only a short distance from the Royal Victoria Country Park which sweeps down to the water’s edge at Netley and is an ideal place to pursue walking and water sports amongst many other leisure facilities.
The original primary school was opened in 1876 at Butlocks Heath. The first of the present school building was opened in 1974. The Infant school was then opened in 1984 on the junior school site, having moved from the village centre. Our infant school comprises of three classrooms within each year group for our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 Pupils. Within the junior school, we are also three-form entry with two modular buildings on our large site for our Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 Pupils. There are various playground areas and extensive playing fields. The school grounds provide a pleasant environment for the pupils and this is well utilised within our curriculum.
Within our Federation, we are committed to developing lifelong learners and responsible citizens with a clear vision for their future. Our high quality teaching and learning raises standards of achievement for all children within a seven year journey from Year R to Year 6. Our vision ‘Together We Can CLIC’ is embedded through the use of our Learning Character’s at Netley Abbey Infant School and our Netley Learning Model at Netley Abbey Junior School; with CLIC at the heart of everything in school.
