Why Choose Townhill Infant School for your child?


We are delighted that following our Ofsted inspection in June 2008 the inspectors have judged that we are a school that is 'outstanding' in all aspects of the inspection framework! This judgement was validated again in Summer 2011.  The Trust Director of Standards and other Senior Leaders within our academy trust also undertake regular reviews of our school improvement, progress and priorities and have also rated Townhill Infant School as outstanding.  You can read the full Ofsted report and the validation summary, along with the Trust Review findings by clicking on the links on the Key Information page.


We believe that our school is fantastic but don't just take our word for it! Here are some comments from the parents survey:


  • I would like to thank all the staff for their neverending and tireless devotion to their pupils and parents.  Townhill is blessed with some of the best and I am proud of the school's achievements.
  • My child loves coming to school and loves telling us what he has been learning every day.
  • Teachers recognise what makes learning interesting so that children love learning.
  • Warm, approachable staff.
  • The school and grounds are maintained beautifully.
  • We can clearly see our daughter is receiving fantastic care and education.
  • Friendly, approachable staff.
  • Staff encourage children to behave and be kind to each other.
  • All children are valued.


As our catchment area is made up of addresses that fall within the wards of both Hampshire County Council and Southampton City Council this has implications on how you apply for your child's school place for Year R. If you pay your council tax to Southampton City Council you need to apply for a school place via Southampton Admissions department at  However, if you pay your council tax to Eastleigh Borough Council you must apply for your child's school place through Hampshire County Council.

The closing date for Year R applications for 2022/23 is 15th January 2022 at 23.59 p.m.
