Awbridge Primary School sits at the North of Romsey in an idyllic setting with just 159 pupils ranging from the ages four to 11.

Awbridge forms part of a family of schools with Wellow and Halterworth Primary Schools.

In 2010 the school formed a Federation with Wellow and since September 2011 have had a formal collaboration with Halterworth Primary School in Romsey.

The family of schools is overseen by executive head Jo Cottrell NLE (A National Leader of Education).

In her role as executive headteacher, she is responsible for the overall strategic direction and success of the school.

Awbridge has extensive school grounds and a games area, which was part funded by the active Parent Teacher Association.

The school says that sport, music and the wider curriculum are valued at Awbridge and this is reflected in their sporting achievements including reaching the Hampshire Games for three years in a row and the girl’s cricket final at the Ageas Bowl.

Awbridge also have a very active Eco-team which actively helps with recycling and looking after the environment.

The school is part of the Halterworth Teaching School Partnership which gives aspiring teachers hands-on experience to earn their qualifications.

Megan Gillett, year four teacher and a previous partnership student, said: “What I love about Awbridge is that it is a small school with a real community.

“Everyone knows everyone.”
