Principal's Welcome


At Kanes Hill Primary School, it is our belief that every child has limitless potential, and we are passionate about unlocking this to develop their confidence, uncover their talents and nurture their aspirations, empowering them to build strong foundations for lifelong learning.

Our curriculum is diverse, innovative and steeped in memorable moments. It is designed to develop curiosity in the world around us and to equip our pupils for the next stage of their education. Beyond the curriculum, we offer the widest range of enrichment opportunities, including a variety of clubs and activities, school trips and visits, leadership roles and responsibilities, workshops and events. These aim to extend pupils’ learning, ignite their passions and interests and acquire key skills for the future.

Music is fully embedded into life at the school as it is a proud specialism of ours. Pupils benefit from a specialist Music teacher and our strong partnership with Southampton Music Hub; and there are several occasions throughout the school year for pupils to showcase their talents, from school productions and music concerts to even performing at the O2 Arena!

Our team of dedicated and enthusiastic staff have high expectations and encourage our pupils to believe in themselves, to take risks, and to be resilient and hardworking in order to achieve and succeed both academically and personally. We get to know each and every one of our children and as a result, we are able to inspire each child to achieve their personal best.

Our success lies in the close and safe community that flourishes here at Kanes Hill, and the excellent relationships that exist between staff, pupils, parents and the local community. What’s more, we are proudly part of the Inspire Learning Partnership, a multi-academy trust working collaboratively with both local schools and some schools in the New Forest. This collaboration means we are supported by a wider network offering expertise, educational opportunities and further enrichment possibilities.

I invite you to learn more about Kanes Hill by coming in to see us in action. I am confident that once you have visited us, you will appreciate what makes our school such a special place.
