Our Mission . . .

Nurturing life-long learners

Shipbourne School is a family.  It is a place of nurture and understanding, strength and resolve where children can achieve their dreams, and conquer their fears, with the support of those about them.


Our aim is to offer a broad and varied curriculum in a happy environment which fosters cheerful, well motivated and interested children who have not only confidence in their own ability, but also a considerate awareness of their peers.

  • to provide a sound educational foundation relevant to our technological society.
  • to create in each child a thirst for knowledge, a joy in learning and a sense of achievement across the curriculum.
  • to inspire children to have ambition to succeed in the skills of literacy and numeracy and to stimulate their curiosity and imagination in all areas of the curriculum.
