Halterworth Primary School Promotional Video

A short film to provide a summary of life at Halterworth Community Primary School in Romsey.


Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision to make as a parent and we want to be able to help make this a straightforward process for you.  We recommend that you visit the schools in your locality to ask the questions important for you and of course see the school at work.


If you would like your child to attend our school, please contact the school office in the first instance.  We can give you the latest status of the waiting lists, application procedure and make an appointment for you to visit.


If your child is due to start school, you will probably see notices around local shops, pre-schools and the library telling you to contact your catchment area school. Applications should be made on-line in the Autumn term at with a closing date early in the following January.  If you are unable to complete a form online, Hampshire Local Education Authority forms may be collected from the school office if you live within our catchment area.
