Local Schools

Many of the children who attend Pitton Pre-School go on to school at either Pitton Primary School, Winterslow Primary School or St Andrew's Primary in Laverstock.  However, many also go further afield, including Salisbury and Amesbury.  We have included links here to schools that children often go to.

          Pitton Primary School

          Winterslow Primary School

          West Tytherley Primary School

          St Andrew's School, Laverstock

          Wallop Primary School


All the schools will welcome a visit from prospective families, and most hold open days during the summer or autumn terms to enable parents to get a feel for the school in action.


As well as visiting schools, it may be helpful to consider their latest OFSTED report, available from the school or online at  OFSTED
