Here you will be able to find all the information you need to know about our school.
Alderbury and West Grimstead Church of England Primary School is a ‘single-form entry’ school. Classes are limited to a maximum of 30 children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 (like all schools), and classes in Years 3 to 6 are usually around this size, too.
If you want to apply for a Reception place in 2019, please check our Admissions procedure under Key Info on the tabs above.
Every year the governing body will review and publish information concerning the Alderbury & West Grimstead school admission policy. This will confirm the maximum number of children to be admitted to the school as a whole, the Pupil Admissions Number (PAN) which is currently 30 and explain how places will be allocated.
If there is anything you would like to know that you can’t find here, please contact us. We would love to talk to you!
“Thank you so much for my warm welcome. I had a great time. AWGS is a lovely, lovely school. Smiling seems to be the default setting.“
‘There’s a lovely family feel to the school, it feels as if it has been here for ever.’
‘I recently spent time at School, in my professional capacity as a Library Systems Trainer and Cataloguer. I was e impressed by all that I encountered at Alderbury. A great and positive atmosphere, caring and helpful staff who were always willing to help, however busy they were, and pupils who were a real credit to the school.’
‘Pupils are very reflective and think deeply about issues such as ‘Peace’ ‘Values’; this confirms strengths in their spiritual, moral and social and cultural development’

Dear Parents, Staff and Governors
This is our last Newsletter of 2017/18 and I have almost completed my first year as Headteacher. I would like to thank all the staff, governors and volunteers for their hard work and dedication this year and to our parents for all their support and for making me feel so welcome. I have enjoyed getting to know the school and the people in it. I would like to wish you all a happy and restful Summer and look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 4th September for the new school year.
Parking at school
Can we please politely remind you to park on the wooded side of Firs Road only, avoiding the zig zag lines near school. Double parking makes it very difficult for an emergency vehicle to gain access to the school and it always causes problems when coaches are visiting. Also, please be respectful of our neighbours and avoid parking in Woodlea Grange. There is plenty of parking available at the Village Hall.
Boundary Coffee Shop at The Village Hall
Open every Friday morning from 9.00 am till Noon for tea/coffee and homemade cake. Drop in for a chat – it’s far more comfortable than the school gate! All profits go to support activities in the village – including the school.
