Bishops Waltham Montessori
Little Shore Lane
At our school we believe every lesson and day counts, which is why our creative, exciting and enriched curriculum has been developed to enthuse and excite children. We use our locality to develop children’s awareness of the world around them. Each child is valued for their own talents, strengths and personality and all succeed during their time with us. Outstanding teaching ensures that all the children in our school enjoy their learning which leads to our attainment in reading, writing and mathematics being consistently above Hampshire and National results. Walking around our school, visitors never fail to comment on the exciting ‘buzz’ of our children enjoying their learning!
We are a village school at the heart of a thriving village community. We ensure our children are active citizens within our community and feel valued. Caring staff and strong parent partnerships ensure that children’s behaviour and attitude to learning are excellent. Our children leave school caring individuals, independent learners and responsible citizens in our community.
Bishop’s Waltham Junior, is a school that likes to celebrate success – at every level.
The life and ethos of the school is driven by an enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We endeavour to bring learning alive for the pupils, making it exciting and stimulating. We want to give the pupils a real thirst for learning which will continue with them throughout their lives.
Our school motto is ‘Enjoy, Learn and Achieve Together’ and that is exactly what we aim to do, on a day to day basis.
An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. The school views education as a joint venture, involving children, parents, staff, governors and the LOCAL COMMUNITY. We hope that we will be able to depend on everyone’s co-operation and support in this partnership, and trust that together we can provide the best for every child.
The school proudly participates in all activities, events and initiatives involving Bishop’s Waltham; including the carnival, festival, BW in bloom, Christmas Fayre and so much more.
We are also very fortunate to have an amazing swimming pool on site which is open for both public and community use and private, commercial hire.
