Amport School was founded in 1815 by Sophia Sheppard, a local resident, for the education of local children and still has representatives of the Sheppard Trust on its governing body.
The school is now a voluntary aided Church of England primary school catering for up to 84 children from the age of 4 – 11. Pupils are taught in four classes. The catchment area of the school includes the villages of Amport, East Cholderton, Monxton and Quarley, along with some small outlying settlements.
Currently the school admits 12 Year R pupils each September and there is usually a waiting list for occasional vacancies for older children. The two most recent OFSTED reports have been very pleasing.
Music is a particular strength of Amport School; opportunities for various sports are offered and after-school clubs flourish. There is a very active PTA.
Pupils progress to a wide variety of local secondary schools, nearby grammar schools and to private sector schools.
School involvement with the Parish Church and the local community is considerable and many volunteers from the community help within the school.

Attention all Times and Sunday Times Readers!
Amport Primary School has signed up for The Times/Sunday Times Books for Schools Scheme, which runs throughout the Spring Term (January to April). From January 11th, Books for Schools tokens will appear every day in The Times and The Sunday Times. The school can exchange these tokens for free books from an extensive range of titles. There will be 12 tokens printed every week, and with books starting at only 10 tokens, you don’t have to be a regular Times reader to really make a difference to the collection. Please collect as many tokens as you can – the collection box is situated in the school’s reception area. Perhaps you could consider asking colleagues, friends and neighbours to collect their tokens on behalf of the school too?
We will be placing our first order at the end of the Spring Term, so please ensure you have brought all your tokens to school by 20th April.
With your help, we can make a real difference to our library giving the children access to some of the very best titles available to schools at the moment. Thank you for supporting us with this scheme and Best Wishes.
Mrs Bernadette Fleet, Headteacher
