Our Local Community

The Church of the Holy Rood

Our Village Church, The Church of the Holy Rood, is part of a community of four churches worshipping together in Alton. Click here to visit the Parish of the Resurrection website.

We visit the Church of the Holy Rood regularly for celebration services, including Harvest Festival and our annual Founders’ Day Service which allows our children to experience a sense of the quality of silence and reflection, and a sense of transcendence and an awareness of there being something more to life than meets the eye.  Members of the local parish community also come into school regularly, leading Collective Worship and helping in other ways around the school.

Holybourne Village

Holybourne Village has its own website, and a magazine, ‘Holybourne Village Life’.  The school regularly contributes articles to the magazine.

Holybourne Village website and to find back copies of the magazine.

We try to make good use of the village to support us in our history, geography and science work allowing our children to show a spirit of enquiry and open mindedness.  

The Lawn

Our children visit The Friends of the Elderly Residential Care Home, called ‘The Lawn’, at special times of the year, to sing and share with the residents.  Through these experiences, our children experience a sense of others as feeling, thinking persons.


Local Groups

The children’s uniqueness is celebrated at Andrews’ Endowed CE Primary School.  We understand that the communities that our children are part of are important.
