Welcome to Anton Junior School website. I am delighted and proud to be have been in post as Headteacher here since April 2020.
This school is situated in Andover, within the picturesque Test Valley, having close proximity to Winchester, Basingstoke and Salisbury.
We are a relatively small school with two classes per year group, surrounded by extensive grounds and facilities, including a music, dance and drama studio, an all-weather pitch, an adventure play-area and an outdoor gym.
Upon entering the school, you will immediately feel the warmth and friendliness of all staff, who genuinely believe in, and uphold our vision:
‘At Anton Junior School we unleash the full potential in every child, fully embedding the knowledge and skills required for them to grow, develop, succeed and be happy.’
We aspire to educate the ‘whole’ child through embedding our engaging, broad and balanced curriculum, underpinned by the core values of kindness and respect, innovation and a love of learning, aspiration, resilience and independence and pride. Ultimately, our priority is to ensure your child is safe, happy and nurtured and only then can begin the exciting journey into a world of fun and innovative learning opportunities.
Our children are our absolute priority and every single decision I make is only ever in the best interests of our children and families. I believe that working together as a school community, we can deliver a standard of education and development that will transform our children into lifelong learners with the skills and attitudes necessary for them to succeed.
