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.

We will then make an appointment for you to meet with either the Headteacher or Deputy Headteachers where you can share information or any concerns you may have regarding your child starting school.


You will also be given a list of key dates in the admissions process, including taster sessions and they day your child will formally start school in September.


We can't wait to meet you and your child and welcome you to our school.  See you soon!
