BalksburyInfant SchoolWhere Care, Co-Operation and Challenge Really Count

Welcome toBalksburyInfant SchoolWhere Care, Co-Operation and Challenge Really Count




Welcome to Balksbury Infants School. Our School is a non-denominational Infant School for boys and girls aged 4-7 years old.
Our school day starts at 08.55 (doors open at 08.45) and finishes at 15.15
The children are very happy at school in a caring atmosphere where there are high expectations of both work and behaviour. They enjoy their learning within a bright stimulating environment.

Educational standards at the school are excellent and this was confirmed in our recent Ofsted Inspection (March 2008) where the school was graded Outstanding in every area.

If you are interested in finding our more about our school, please do not hesitate to contact the School on 01264 352801 to arrange a visit.
