and Worthy Down are in the area administered by the Hampshire Education Authority.Winchester
Parents are required by law to ensure that their children receive full-time education from the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday.
In Hampshire children who are ‘rising five’ may start school at the beginning of the Autumn term (September) of the school year in which the child’s 5th birthday occurs. New arrivals in Winchester Garrison who have children of school age should apply direct to the Head Teacher, of the school of their choice, in the first place.
Parents who wish their children to attend a different school to the one serving their home area can apply to do so; similarly transfers between schools can take place and the Government does help with certain boarding fees.
Information on these matters can be obtained from the County Education Officer, The Castle, Winchester.
