About our Schools
Federated Infant & Junior
The Infant and Junior Schools in Woolton Hill have long worked closely together, and by Federating we have created the best of both! The best that comes with dedicated infant and junior focused education, allowing both schools to specialise in the specific needs of that age group; and the best that comes from offering a full primary education and a continuous curriculum with consistent vision and values.
At the Schools of Woolton Hill we equip children with the skills they need to progress well in life. Through the excellent learning opportunities provided, our skilled staff work hard to ensure all pupils gain the knowledge and experience required to succeed in their education and become responsible citizens and life-long learners.
If you haven’t visited us already, please come and see us in action. We are extremely proud of our Federation and would be delighted to welcome you as part of our extended family.
Reasons to choose the Schools of Woolton Hill
Federated Infant and Juniors
The Infant and Junior Schools in Woolton Hill have long worked closely together, and by Federating we have created the best of both! The best that comes with dedicated infant and junior focused education, allowing both schools to specialise in the specific needs of that age group; and the best that comes from offering a full primary education with a continuous curriculum, shared facilities and consistent vision and values.
Teachers tailor their lessons to meet the needs of all pupils. They understand the learning needs of each individual child and their starting point, ensuring all children make great progress.
We make learning so exciting that even the most reluctant child can't help but get stuck in! Topics always start with a "hook" to ensure the children are engaged and excited to come to school and learn.
Our strong relationship with the Church
We are proud of our strong links with the local church; St Thomas Infant School as a Church School and Woolton Hill Junior School as Church Affiliated. This informs our shared values of Wisdom, Courage and Respect.
The children enjoy visits to the church for celebrations throughout the year - the infants, in particular, benefiting from their own private entrance to the church!
We are quickly building a reputation for outdoor learning. With great facilities including a large, multi-use games arena, netball courts, a trim-trail and our newly constructed outdoor classroom.
Next year we are excited to launch our new outdoor learning curriculum, ensuring the children benefit from the wonderful local setting.
Let your light shine
Our motto "Let your light shine" encapsulates how we want to nurture the talents of each and every child, to enable them to find their thing.
We want them to find the thing that let's their light shine, through academic achievements, as well as sporting success and enjoyment of the arts. We provide a number of clubs as well as entering local competitions with other schools.
Located on the Hampshire/Berkshire Border in the picturesque village of Woolton Hill, St Thomas' Infant School is a friendly and welcoming Church school.
St Thomas' Infant School provides education for children of all faiths and none. The school has been enlarged several times and in 1977 became solely an infant school after the closure of Highclere Primary School and the opening of Woolton Hill Junior School.
The school takes children from Reception though to Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2). We currently have approximately 110 children on roll.
The school benefits from large open grounds and a tranquil village setting.
We believe that education is a partnership between home and school; it is about sharing the same expectations and everyone working together to achieve the best for your child. We strive to develop effective learning in a stimulating and challenging environment where the needs of each individual are met.
Woolton Hill Junior School is a Church Affilliated school, set in the village of Woolton Hill, less than 300 metres from the Infant School.
