Waverley Abbey CofE Junior School, Tilford

The motto ‘Reaching potential, exceeding expectations’ runs through all aspects of life at Waverley Abbey CofE Junior School (converted 1/12/16) where pupils are given every opportunity to grow as young people and which consistently attains above national average academic results.

Equipped with a computing suite, heated outdoor pool and music block as well as five acres of playing fields, the school’s 510 pupils enjoy not only a wealth of physical facilities but also the skills of dedicated languages and sports teachers, helping to ensure a rich and varied educational experience.

There is an understanding that children learn effectively through real experiences and alongside a range of school clubs and visitors from the realms of music, arts, sports and the world around, each year group has an established residential programme.

Year Six pupils take part in an award scheme similar to the Duke of Edinburgh’s programme and all pupils are encouraged to take initiative and become more independent, with, for example, a number of older pupils running clubs for younger pupils. Pupils also take part in a national dance competition and this year the school will send a group of young athletes to a triathlon training camp

Christian values underpin all aspects of school life – from weekly assemblies to the ‘hidden curriculum’ of developing skills in empathy, respect, forgiveness and honesty. Relationships, whether they be with pupils and parents, the local community or the many feeder infant schools or secondary school colleagues, are central to the school’s success – Waverley Abbey may be a large school but it is passionate about its family feel.
