We currently have spaces available in Years 4, 5, and 6 for September 2024. Our school features a 20m indoor heated pool, offering weekly swimming lessons for pupils. We provide full wraparound care on-site and offer approximately 20 extra-curricular clubs each term. If you would like to visit the school, please contact us.

Welcome to our school website!

At our school each child is valued and their unique set of skills and talents developed so that they can ‘be the best that they can be’. Our belief is that learning should be exciting and engaging. We want every child to leave our school ready for the next stage in their education and with a real appetite for learning.

We have high aspirations for every child that attends our school and a strong track record of achieving academic success. Equally, we ensure children at Bishop’s Waltham Junior are able to explore their full range of talents and interests.

Alongside a stimulating and varied curriculum, we offer a range of sporting, musical and artistic enrichment activities including successful sports clubs, drama productions and music concerts.

We place great emphasis on developing children’s personal skills and believe in the importance of developing kind, caring and respectful individuals. Behaviour in our school is very good and we offer children high quality care and pastoral support. We have strong systems in place to support children with additional learning needs and have a fully qualified Special Needs Co-ordinator on the staff team.

I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of Bishop’s Waltham Junior School and of the children and staff who contribute so much to the life of the school.

If you would like to find out more about the school or to arrange a visit please do not hesitate to contact us.

Darren Campbell

Headteacher

A place where excellence, effort and happiness are valued in equal measure.

Friday 5th July 2024 - Year Six Update

We are very much approaching the final stages of Year 6, and our timetable has become a real mix of regular lessons and unusual events!  We have started our final English unit (based around Nicola Davies' 'Whale Boy') this week and we've bought our science unit on classification and our geography work on Hawaii to their final stages.

 

Our production rehearsals continue to go well - it's now just over our week until our first performances, and next week, we'll have the chance to try on our costumes and work through some final technical run-throughs.

 

Yesterday, the majority of the year group spent their day at Swanmore getting acclimatised before their transition in September.  The feedback we had from the children was very positive - they're looking forward to their new challenges!

 

Today, we had a visitor from Hampshire Fire Service who came to deliver some learning about fire safety.  Please talk to your children about this - they were given some helpful life lessons that will be worth embedding for the future.

 

Our next two weeks include our performances, some theme park maths, the end of our English unit, our re-arranged fun sports afternoon and much more.  And then - the summer holidays!

 

Have a lovely weekend.

Friday 12th July 2024 - Year 3 Learning Update

This week, Year 3 enjoyed food tasting as part of their DT lessons. They have designed and planned their flapjack (which they'll be making next Thursday) with their own dried fruit ingredients - we are very much looking forward to seeing how these turn out!

In Maths, we have been practising using the compact method for addition and subtraction and applying our skills in two-step word problems.

In Computing, the children have created their own Google Slides document about the Romans - they have remembered how to copy and paste information from web pages to create their presentation.
