Western Church of England
Welcome to Western Church of England Primary School website. My name is Mr Peter Burbridge and I am the headteacher.
Western is a popular school, in an ideal location. It is situated less than a mile to the west of the city centre and is set in very attractive, extensive grounds. There are games pitches, three playgrounds, a grassed play area which includes a Fitness Trail and a nature trail. The school site has far reaching views over Winchester and the surrounding countryside.
After a number of extensions, our two form entry school offers a range of good facilities: a well stocked library that is an oasis of tranquillity within a busy school environment, an ICT suite, a Music and Drama Room, a Design Technology Room and a Nurture Room.
Our pupils are sociable, articulate and creative; they respond well to responsibility and challenge. They are eager to learn, resourceful and enthusiastic. We believe an imaginative, well-planned curriculum enables children to Imagine, Create and Achieve. We want them to be inspired by the learning opportunities on offer so they can become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
I hope you enjoy exploring our website and that it gives you an insight into the school, its ethos and the staff, families and governors who are all part of our community.
