We are a small school situated on the outskirts of the city, mainly serving the Redbridge and Millbrook neighbourhoods. We are next to the bustling Southampton docks and a short distance from the New Forest. Redbridge Primary School first started providing education within the community in 1859. In 2010, we were delighted to relocate to a fantastic new building, well-equipped for giving our children what is needed for effective 21st century education. We now have extensive outside space which is highly beneficial for our children.
