Welcome to Southwood Infant School
Welcome to Southwood Infant School, situated in the heart of the Southwood development in Farnborough.
We are busy recruiting for a brand new Headteacher from September 2016 onwards. In the meantime, Mrs Heather Clarke (Interim Headteacher) and Miss Rebecca Blamires (Acting Headteacher) are sharing the role. Mrs Clarke is in school Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Miss Blamires, our Deputy Headteacher, is ‘acting up’ on Thursdays and Fridays.
Our school was built in 1993 and the architect won several awards for its excellent design. We have beautiful grounds, including a school field and a woodland walk which we use as our `outside classroom’.
The children are enthusiastic learners and we do our very best to make their activities engaging, exciting and successful. We have a rich curriculum which is full of opportunities for the children to explore, question and acquire a love of learning which will remain with them throughout their lives.
We believe that education is a partnership between the school, its parents and their children. Ensuring that the children have a happy and secure first experience of school life is very important to us. We firmly believe that working together with parents brings about the greatest success for children. We actively encourage parents to come into school and value their contribution to school life.
Please arrange a visit so that you can really appreciate the school’s values and achievements.
Mrs Heather Clarke Interim Headteacher
