LOCAL SCHOOLS

At Lover & Redlynch Pre-school opportunities for hands-on outdoor play experiences, within a nurturing, child-centred approach create a happy and stimulating learning environment for children aged 2 to 4.  Lover & Redlynch Pre-school is well-known locally for its caring, ‘family’ feel and offers an indoor-outdoor learning ethos to make full use of our beautiful natural surroundings and recently-enhanced outdoor space.  An independent pre-school, we send children on to four local primary schools – Hale, Morgan’s Vale, Downton and New Forest (Landford & Nomansland).  Small enough to ensure each child is cared for as an individual, making secure attachments to the committed staff team, we welcome children from age 2 upwards – nappies no problem!  To visit our pre-school and see for yourself phone 01725 510295 or call for a prospectus and application form.  OFSTED Registered – ‘Outstanding’ status 2011 Reg.

Morgans Vale & Woodfalls CE Primary School.  We are a small Church of England school for children aged 2-11 at the centre of the village communities of Morgan's Vale, Woodfalls, Lover and Redlynch. We believe that a child's primary school years should be some of the happiest of their lives and this impacts on everything we do from the care we take of our children, to the fun and creative curriculum we plan.  A calm industrious buzz of learning or laughter from a shared funny moment are the most common sounds heard in our classrooms and corridors...

Trafalgar School Downton. We are a mixed comprehensive school of 545 students, set in the historic village of Downton, Wiltshire. Along with best possible academic and personal success for all of our students, we aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, respectful, caring young minds that will help to create a better world.

To support these objectives we have adopted the International Baccalaureate® (IB), Middle Years Programme (MYP) at our school.

Through our ethos, and supported by the IB framework, we aim to nurture a love of learning that will last a life time, and prepare our students for study and jobs in established areas, and ones that have yet to be discovered.

Hale Primary School.  The school is beautifully situated next to the Village Green where ponies, cattle and pigs graze. The direct access to The New Forest offers fantastic learning opportunities.  ‘Pupils learn well in this school because of good teaching and the stimulating curriculum that ensure many highly motivating experiences for pupils'.

At Hale School we will strive to nurture the unique potential of every child.  We will develop their ability to learn by explicitly teaching the skills and attributes needed to become the best learner they can be...
