Our School

Northern Infant School is now part of the Northern Schools Federation along with Northern Junior School.  We look forward to all the new opportunities this will bring for the whole school community, improving the learning experiences for all of our children.

Northern Infant School is a warm and friendly community with learning at its heart. We are situated in north Portchester and enjoy panoramic views over the Solent and Isle of Wight.

The school is small and this engenders a supportive family atmosphere. Parents, staff and governors work together effectively for the benefit of the children.  We have an active Home School Association.


At Northern Infant School we aim to prepare children for the challenges they will meet in life. We recognise the children’s right to a childhood and capitalise on their natural desire to learn and make sense of their world.

We aim to inspire and amaze! We will develop children’s self-confidence and self-esteem so that they can experience a lifetime of fulfillment.
