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

A warm welcome

Southfield is a 2-form entry academy in Highworth, just north of Swindon. We are a junior school situated on the borders of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire for children aged between 7 and 11.

On 1st January 2018, I started my new role as the Executive Head Teacher of Southfield Junior School and Eastrop Infant School – two schools within a brilliant 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.  

This is a good school. Since the previous inspection, the school has undergone significant changes in leadership and staffing. Following his appointment in January 2018, the executive headteacher quickly established a cohesive team of skilled leaders. Together, they have rapidly addressed the areas for improvement from the previous inspection. Ofsted, June 2019.

Our website has been designed 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. To visit the infant school's website, please click this link.

Recently, the children worked with We Are Jooka to create their very own film about our schools. Please click the play button below to watch their film. 

We are keen to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If you are a prospective family and you’d like to see Southfield in action, please give us a call to make an appointment as we’d be very pleased to show you around. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Enjoy browsing!
