Buriton Primary School is located on the High Street in the picturesque village of Buriton near Petersfield. It is therefore central to this small but vibrant rural community, which is surrounded by farmland and nestles in the South Downs on the border of Queen Elizabeth Country Park.


Renowned for its beautiful duck pond, playground, recreation ground and circular walks, Buriton is an attractive location for families with young children. Many of our children are admitted from our popular village Nursery School, which is situated adjacent to the school and with whom we maintain good links. Our school admissions policy is inclusive and we welcome families from Petersfield and its surrounding villages. Our induction process takes account of children from all types of early learning settings. For more information, please download a copy of our prospectus or contact the school to send a copy.
