As part of a new housing development, we feel it is our moral duty to help build this growing community and support the family within it.
We have begun developing strong links with our neighbouring COMMUNITY CENTRE. We have run 2 joint family BANK HOLIDAY events which have been very successful. It is great to work with the COMMUNITY CENTRE and be able to offer fun activities for our local families.
More information about local events and how to become involved in the local community can be found on the local community association's website:
We also have a strong partnership with the local church, St Mary's in Andover, who visit the school on a weekly basis and lead worship for the children. We also host a POP UP CAFE here on the school site every first Saturday of the month. pls see below:

FIRST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH
