We are delighted to announce that Stamshaw Infant School and Stamshaw Junior School joined the University of Chichester Academy Trust on the 1st April 2019.

Stamshaw Infant and Stamshaw Junior School are both based in Portsmouth and will be joining an amazing group of schools all of which are unique and working to meet the needs of their local community.

Our passion is to develop high quality education which meets the needs of local communities and provides the very best opportunities for children ‘to shine brightly’ and we are especially delighted to have the opportunity to work with both the Infant and Junior Schools for the benefit of the children and of the whole Stamshaw community.

Stamshaw Infant School

Stamshaw Infant School is a happy and friendly school where children learn with confidence in an environment where respect, happiness and creativity underpin everything they do. They believe that children need to enjoy their learning to be successful and wish to motivate all their pupils to learn new skills and follow their dreams and aspirations.

The school hope to ignite a passion for learning which lasts a lifetime and feel very privileged to be part of each child’s education. Stamshaw Infants believe that together they can ensure that our children grow up to be caring individuals, successful learners and fulfilled confident citizens.


Stamshaw Junior School

Stamshaw Junior School is located in the north western corner of Portsea Island, close to the M275 and less than 2 miles from the nearest train station.  With extensive school grounds, Stamshaw Junior also benefits from being close to two large parks, and Portsmouth’s main area for sporting facilities. 

Children entering Stamshaw Junior School will find a world of learning opportunities to inspire their awe and wonder.  They see primary education not merely as preparation for ‘Big School’ or as a means of passing a series of tests, but as a journey of discovery to fire the imagination, to establish a sense of self, and gain the confidence to take full part in the wider world.

Stamshaw Junior School will provide all children with an excellent education that instills in them a love of learning to take them forward joyfully in life
