George Herbert & Bemerton
The famous 17th Century Poet George Herbert was the Rector who lived in the Old Rectory just down the road from the school, opposite the little St Andrew's Church. The George Herbert in Bemerton Group is a local community group that celebrates his life and works. The Group maintains strong links with the school, and promotes an awareness of George Herbert and his place in history by sponsoring an annual poetry competition for some of the older children
All the winners of the George Herbert Poetry Competition 2017 are on display at the George Herbert Website http://www.georgeherbert.org.uk/docs/2017%20Competition%20Winners.pdf
St John's Church
The Victorian church opposite the school was closed for 8 years after the heating broke. Following a major fundraising campaign and a £650,000 building project, it was re-opened in 2016 as a shared community, school, and church space. For further information visit www.stjohnsplace.uk
