We are delighted to welcome you to our school. Shirley Junior School is a welcoming school for 7-11 year-olds in the Shirley area of Southampton. We work hard to achieve high standards in learning, and we explore ideas and think creatively. Our local community supports and encourages everyone to take pride in their achievements in and out of school.

We are very proud of our children, staff and supportive community and believe that our vision captures everything we aim to do for the children. We endeavour to make it real and relevant as your children move through our school.

We hope this website will give you a hint of what our school is about, but this can never replace first-hand experience. We would encourage you to come and see us in action and speak to our staff and children yourself.

This year as a community we have been looking at our visions and values; unpicking 'Every child, Every chance, Every day, what it means to all those in our school and ensuring we strive for this for all of our pupils. We have begun to create new core values that all Shirley staff will model and all Shirley pupils will learn through our personal skills as they grow throughout our school.
