Information about this school

Hook-with Warsash is a larger than average-sized primary school, with two classes in each year group.

It converted to a Church of England academy in September 2012. When its predecessor school was inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be a good school overall. The proportions of pupils with special educational needs supported by school action and also by school action plus or a statement of special educational needs are below the national average.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds, including those who speak English as an additional language, is low. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is well below average. This funding is to provide extra support for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and for children who are looked after.

Breakfast and after-school clubs are run by a private provider and are inspected separately. There have been several changes in leadership this year due to retirement or promotion. The current headteacher was appointed in September 2013.

Since it became an academy, the school has established a wide range of partnerships with other schools and professionals, including outstanding schools and members of the National College of School Leadership. The school is a University of Chichester partner school in Initial Teacher Training. The school is part of a consortium working with other local schools to enhance the achievement of the most able pupils.
