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.

Winchester Schools Swimming Gala 2024

Winchester Schools Swimming Gala 2024

On Friday, 7th June, 24 schools participated in the Winchester Schools Gala, featuring relay races for Years 5 and 6 and 25m sprints for Year 4 swimmers. The standard of swimming was outstanding, and our BWJS team competed against many of their usual rivals, including Twyford and St Swithun's schools.

 

The boys' mixed stroke relay team and the girls' mixed stroke and freestyle teams all advanced to the finals, having posted some of the top six best times in the heats. In the finals, the top six schools competed, and BWJS was among them. The pressure was on, and the nerves were jangling!

 

With great technique, wonderful dives, and faultless takeovers, the boys' team finished 5th in the mixed stroke relay. The girls' freestyle team fought hard but just missed out on the final touch, finishing 2nd behind Twyford. The girls' mixed stroke team delivered an amazing performance, lying in 2nd place after the butterfly length until the last 25m, when our freestyle swimmer powered into 1st place to become the Winchester Schools Mixed Stroke Relay Champions 2024.

 

Our team was wonderful to be with on the poolside, showing care and support for each other and a strong determination to represent BWJS to the absolute best of their ability. What more could we ask for!

Friday 14th June 2024 - Year 3 Learning Update

Year 3 welcomed Year 2 to school on Monday afternoon and helped their buddies create a nature bookmark and colour a leaf of their new new class for September. An enjoyable time was had by all!

 

The children have also started practising their assembly for the Year 2's and parents - watch this space as more information will be sent out in the near future!

 

As well as completing some reading and maths tests, Year 3 have continued to learn about the Romans by looking at Roman roads before moving onto learning about Boudicca. 

 

Have a lovely weekend.
