Andrewsâ Endowed School is a Church of England Primary School for children from four to eleven years old.
The original school was founded and endowed under the will of Thomas Andrews in 1719. Thomas Andrews was a local benefactor, who left money in his will for a school to be established for âthe poor childrenâ of Holybourne and the surrounding villages. The schoolâs foundation is celebrated each year with a service in the Church of the Holy Rood at Holybourne, when our pupils lay posies at the tomb of Thomas Andrews.
The original 18th Century schoolhouse is still in use, housing our admin offices, group rooms and our lovely library. Behind the school house the building has been modified and extended several times as the school roll has expanded. We recently completed a major building project, replacing two temporary classrooms with superb, purpose-built accommodation for our younger pupils, and enabling us to refurbish three further classrooms.
We pride ourselves on being a village school, a church school, and a family school.
We are committed to retaining and maintaining the intimate, family-centred ethos of a village school whilst providing a curriculum and learning environment which meets the needs of 21st Century learners.
We hope you enjoy browsing our website and finding out more about our unique school.
