Schools

The first of two schools to be built on site, Berewood Primary School provides children with an excellent education that instils in them a love of learning to take them forward joyfully in life.

Located in Kentidge Way (PO7 3BE), the school supports children aged between 4 and 11 years old and is run by the University of Chichester Academy Trust.

The school building has bright classrooms, additional learning spaces, the latest technology, and a library at its heart.

In addition to the standard curriculum, the school runs Forest School sessions to take advantage of the woodland nature reserve on its doorstep.

The school is fully accessible for all children, including those with physical and sensory needs or where English is not a first language.

The latest OFSTED report from 2017 rated the school as ‘Good’ overall, with ‘Outstanding’ leadership. You can read the full report here.

Berewood Community Nature Reserve runs down the west of the site, providing over 120 acres of beautiful green space for everyone to enjoy.

The Nature Reserve includes Newlands Meadow, open fields and stunning ancient woodland.

Perfect for dog owners, families, exercise fans, and those who just want to spend a relaxing moment in nature.

The Nature Reserve has a network of footpaths and a bridleway running through, providing access for cyclists and horse riders as well as visitors on foot/wheelchair.

A planning application has been submitted to enhance the Nature Reserve with children’s play equipment, dog agility areas, and improved footpaths. Works are anticipated to take place this year, subject to planning approval.

IMG-TownPark -14

Berewood Town park includes children’s play equipment, a MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) with basketball nets, a skate park, and areas for picnics and outdoor events.

Play is not confined to a single space, but incorporated into the landscape as a whole so that there are opportunities for play around every corner.

A planning application has been submitted for the second phase of the park, with work due to start later this year (2021).

The second phase of the Town Park will include a state-of-the-art Cricket Pavilion with pitches and parking, Petanque courts, and wildlife areas.

One of the highlights of Town Park is our fantastic skate park.

Visitors travel from far and wide to enjoy this facility as it is one of the best in Hampshire.

River Wallington

The River Wallington runs across the north of the site, and over the past year has been transformed from a small concrete culvert into a free flowing river.

New wildlife has already taken up residence, with a particular heron being spotted on the riverside daily.

As well as additional plants and landscaping, fully accessible paths and bridges are being installed so that everyone can visit and enjoy this wonderful feature.
