About our School
Warberry Primary School is a Church of England Foundation Primary School, opened on 6 January 1972. It was built on the site of the former Winchester Lodge Preparatory School for Boys, and extended in October 1989 as a replacement for the old Torwood C E School and Madrepore Road annexe.
There are 13 classrooms, a Nursery, a large hall, 3 playgrounds, KS1 and KS2 libraries and a computer suite. We have a large sports field adjacent to school. The children use the field for playtimes in the dry summer months and for games lessons (e.g. football, rounders, and athletics).
Within the context of Christian values, Warberry C of E (Foundation) Primary School aims to provide a safe, happy, stimulating and challenging learning environment. The supportive school ethos of high expectations will enable pupils to achieve, grow, flourish and become confident individuals. This will enable them to appreciate their own worth and that of others.
A thematic curriculum, encouraging high standards, participation, creativity, reflection and independence will be provided as well as a vast range of extra-curricular opportunities to enrich learning.
Assessment and feedback will value pupils’ work, guide them in their next steps and learning activities will develop team-work, leadership skills and self reliance.
Excellent behaviour and respect for others are expected at all times at Warberry as preparation for life beyond school.
