About The Arnewood School

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to The Arnewood School, an academy that has both a local and national reputation for excellence. We place our children’s needs first so that they are at the core of good decision making as to what is best for our school community. Our academic record over a long period shows us to be a consistently high performing school, with impressive examination results at all key stages including in our vibrant sixth form. We continue to raise standards in all subject areas; we encourage diversity in teaching and scholarly learning across all subjects. We place great emphasis on a healthy balance between academic work and the all-round development of children. Ours is an academy with a strong commitment to very good pastoral care and a wide variety of curricular opportunities both cultural and sporting. The school is in part characterised by the wide range of trips and visits that create memorable learning experiences for students. We aim to suit individual tastes and needs. We recognise that words, pictures and statistics will only give you a hint of the warmth, ambition and commitment of our innovative learning community and we invite you to see us in action. I am very confident that a visit to The Arnewood School will justify your interest in the school as we continue to develop as a centre of excellence in The New Forest and beyond. At Arnewood we pride ourselves on our great international links to help develop a global mindset.
