Headteacher's Welcome

A warm welcome to Albourne C.E. Primary School. The school is set in the heart of Albourne village, in beautiful rural surroundings, at the foot of the South Downs. Our pupils come from a wide rural catchment area and range from age 4 to 11 years.

Vision and Values

Our Christian values are the basis for everything we do at Albourne and they play a key role in the development of our pupils academically, emotionally, morally, socially and spiritually. We encourage pupils to consider how we model our values through our actions in daily life.

All pupils at Albourne are members of one of our house teams. Houses are named after trees - Oak, Alder, Willow and Walnut - as chosen by our pupils.
