Kennet Valley School is a Church of England aided primary school in the village of Lockeridge.
Kennet Valley Church of England primary school is sited in Lockeridge and serves the surrounding villages. It is a Voluntary Aided school based within the Salisbury Diocese with around 80 children on the roll aged between 4 and 11 (from Reception to Year 6) across four classrooms.
Historically the villages of Lockeridge and East Kennet had had their own primary schools, but by the late 80’s numbers started to fall and eventually it was not possible to keep both schools open. In 1990 the schools were ‘federated’ with the building in Lockeridge housing the Infant School (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) along with the Bluebell Nursery and the East Kennet Site housing the Junior years (Years 3-6). Both sites were managed by a single head teacher and governing body.
Over the intervening years the numbers began to increase and the potential to unite the two sites was investigated. Eventually the site in Lockeridge was chosen, and during academic year 2010/11, extra classrooms and meeting rooms were added to the Victorian building to enable the single site school to open in the autumn term 2012.
