Reception 2021 visits. Come and see what Whitchurch is all about!

Due to lockdown restrictions our Reception 2021 visits will take on a very different format this year, but one we hope will still give a lasting impression of a school where everyone ‘achieves their best together!’

To the right are three presentations/ videos about our school. One is the presentation Mr Hornsby would normally give to parents when first visiting, the next is a video that was mainly filmed by the children of our school! The third and final video was created for children who joined this year, but your child may enjoy watching it too! Please also download the school prospectus by clicking the blue link below.

Once you have viewed the media, please make an appointment over the phone (01275 833593) to discuss our school with Mr Hornsby (Head teacher) or Mrs Lawson (Deputy Head teacher) about any questions, queries, or to simply learn more about wonderful Whitchurch Primary School! Alternatively email

Hopefully this will allow you to see all the great work going on at our school. Meanwhile, please browse our photo gallery here.

We look forward to welcoming you to Whitchurch!

Welcome to Whitchurch Primary School!

Our school was established in 1914 and we take great pride in educating children in a challenging, exciting and purposeful environment – achieving our best together.

As a friendly, happy and inclusive school that provides a caring, stimulating and supportive environment, we will work with determination to help all children develop their full potential. We are proud of their achievements and celebrate their success.

Through our school values of respect, friendship, courage, determination, excellence and awareness, we encourage positive social skills, self-respect and a caring attitude towards all others in the school and the wider community. The dedicated and committed staff team understand and relish the importance of every day in each child's life and we believe that all our children have the right to the best possible learning experiences during their time with us.

At Whitchurch Primary School our children feel safe, happy and challenged. We are proud of our high standards and recognise that our achievements are created and sustained through a strong partnership between home and school. Together we have founded a thriving school community, established on a shared commitment to ensuring outstanding provision for all.
