Southfield Junior School

  • "This is a good school. Southfield is calm and orderly, but has a 'buzz' of activity. Leaders have set out clear and high expectations. Teachers have the secure knowledge of the curriculum to be able to challenge pupils." - Ofsted 2019

Executive Head Teacher's Welcome

Southfield is a 2-form entry, junior academy in Highworth. We are situated just north of Swindon on the borders of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. 

On 1st January 2018, I started my new role as the Executive Head Teacher of Southfield Junior School and Eastrop Infant School – two schools with one very special community. I feel incredibly privileged to be working with two great staff teams and governors who share my vision that your children deserve the very best during their time with us.

We’ve designed our new website to provide as much information as we can to show everyone how our school works. As time moves on and the children grow and progress through our school, our website will evolve and reflect the changes around us all. 

Pupils are positive and confident...and their attitudes to learning are good. They communicate well with each other, staff and visitors.

Southfield provides nearly 240 children with an exciting environment in which they grow and develop by learning lots and making great friends. We are very well supported by an active P.T.A. and parents who are supportive of our school. Alongside our ambitious Governing Body, we have an unwavering desire for the children to receive the very best, all-round education so that they are confident, independent and ready to take their next steps when they leave us at the end of Year 6.

Current pupils are well prepared for the next stage in their education because of the good links with local secondary schools, especially in the expectations of the English curriculum.

We really hope that you enjoy learning about our school as you click through and explore our website.

With best wishes and thanks for visiting,

Aaron Griffiths | Executive Head Teacher
