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 their admissions department.  However, if you pay your council tax to Eastleigh Borough Council you must apply for your child's school place through Hampshire County Council.


If you would like your child to attend Townhill Infant School and they are already attending another school then please contact a member of the office team on 023 8047 4835 who will be happy to guide you through the application process.

Is your child due to start school in September 2020?


If your child is due to start Year R in September 2020 we will be conducting school tours where you can look around the school with your child so that you can make an informed decision about which school you would like to choose for your child.


We will be holding self guided tours on Tuesday 24th September 2019 from 9.30 to 10.30am and Wednesday 25th September 2019 from 1.45 to 2.45pm.  You can bring your child to have a walk around the school whilst the pupils are in lessons so you can see what an exciting time our children have whilst learning.  This type of tour is ideal if you already have older children in school or know our school well.  Either the Headteacher or Deputy Headteachers will be available to talk to should you have any questions.  If you would like to attend one of these sessions simply turn up with your child during either of the sessions and you'll be free to look around - there is no need to book.


For those parents choosing a school for the first time or those who may not be familiar with our school, we also offer guided tours with either the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher who will take small groups of parents and their children on a guided tour around the school whilst its in action.  They will explain about what happens during your child's first year in school and what we have to offer in terms of curriculum, school life, etc.  Guided tours will be offered on the following days:


Friday 27th September 2019 at 1.30pm

Tuesday 1st October 2019 at 9.30am

Thursday 3rd October 2019 at 1.30pm
