Southfield Junior School


A warm welcome

Southfield is a junior academy in Highworth, near Swindon. We are a school situated on the borders of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire for children aged between 7 and 11. We are very proud to be part of Grove Learning Trust. 


It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. Southfield is a school that champions every child and through our values, we enable children to grow into life-long learners. 

We believe strongly that learning has no limits and do our best to make sure that each day is great for every child. Alongside our core subjects, the children engage in a broad curriculum and participate in events, theme days and trips to enhance their learning. 

Our children are 'ready', 'respectful' and 'safe' and as a result we have calm yet productive learning environments. Staff ensure children are at the heart of every decision and we are passionate about building and maintaining positive, trusting relationships. 

Our dedicated team of staff combine quality teaching with an awareness of children's mental health and well-being. We use the 'zones of regulation' approach to support children to understand and manage their emotions in and out of the classroom. To enable quality teaching, we champion excellent attendance and we are committed to working with our families to ensure the children are at school ready to learn. 

Exploring our website should tell you plenty about Southfield. You'll find our policies, curriculum information, calendar dates, staff lists and more. If there is anything you'd like to know, please contact the school office and we will be happy to help. 

If you are a prospective family and you’d like to see us in action, please call us to make an appointment as we’d be very pleased to show you around.
