Welcome to LJS!

On behalf of all our children and staff I would like to welcome you to Lymington Junior School. We aim to provide an exciting learning environment, where children can build upon their previous experiences and knowledge to achieve the highest possible standards.

Lymington Junior School is a very happy school with enthusiastic children supported by a thoroughly professional and dedicated team of staff and Governors. Our children are at the heart of everything we do. We are extremely proud of our strong academic performance, exciting curriculum and the wide array of sporting and extra-curricular activities available to our children.

Key to the success of our school is partnership with parents, through which we develop our shared aspirations for the children's education and future success. Working in partnership, we strive to ensure that academic rigour, aligned with the fantastic range of sporting and artistic experiences on offer, help to prepare our children for secondary school and all of the opportunities life will offer them in the years to come.

We also offer very popular before/after school and holiday clubs to support your busy family lives.

We hope you enjoy looking through our website and finding out more about our school. If you have any questions or would like to come and visit us to experience school life for yourself, please contact our school office.

I look forward to welcoming you to Lymington Junior School and showing you around our wonderful school.
