On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I would like to welcome you to Balksbury Federation website. We hope you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of our federation, the work of our children and the quality of education we strive to deliver.


Our federation is based on the southwest of Andover and sits on the former Bronze Age site.


At Balksbury Federation we are committed to delivering inspirational teaching that develops well rounded and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential. We our want children to be articulate, confident and independent young people who benefit from being part of a happy federated community. It is important to all of us that children achieve to the best of their ability, whilst respecting the views of others, being polite and reflecting on self-discipline. Our learning ethos is designed to motivate children’s curiosity, through a mixture of first hand experiences, direct teaching, independent and collaborative work.


All of the staff share our Vision and recognise children as unique individuals with talents and needs.  The staff work tirelessly to provide a positive school experience.  You will find our classrooms full of activity, learning and fun, making Balksbury Federation a special place for children.


We believe a close partnership between home and school is vital and beneficial to children and we look forward to working with you. We will keep you up-to-date with your child’s progress and school events; our door is open to you, and we hope that your time here at Balksbury Federation is a positive and happy experience.
