I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and thank you for taking the time to find out about our school community.


As Headteacher, I am proud of our school, proud of our children and proud to lead a team that encourages every child to develop their individual talents and skills to become happy, confident learners. 


At Alderbury & West Grimstead School, we believe that everyone has a part to play in the education of our pupils. We value the relationships between our staff, governors and the wider community. As a Church of England school we are also fortunate to enjoy close links with our churches in the local area. We all work together to ensure that children enjoy the challenges of a varied and inspiring curriculum that develops their curiosity and thirst for knowledge.


By building positive and trusting relationships with the families in our community, we are confident that every child can dream big and achieve their ambitions. Our families are very supportive of this aim, as they see their children flourish in a safe and caring environment.


I hope to see you at our school soon where you will receive a warm welcome and I am confident that you will leave with a positive, lasting impression.


Mr Thorpe 


We are currently offering a choice of "tours" to prospective parents to conform with CoViD-19 guidance.


Tours can be arranged during the day, but sadly parents and prospective pupils will not be able to enter the classrooms. "After School" tours are possible, which will enable you to visit the classrooms, before they are cleaned ready for the next working day.

We hope this short video "tour" may be helpful, if you are considering Alderbury & West Grimstead School for your Reception aged pupil.
