Creating a place where children can learn and flourish


The University of Winchester Academy Trust was delighted to be selected as the sponsor for the brand new Barton Farm Academy. The Academy serves the new ‘Kings Barton’ development in Winchester. The school is a 420 place academy for children aged 4-11 and opened in September 2020.. Visit the school website here

We have created an academy where children will learn and flourish and which is aspirational, inclusive and joyful. We worked with Hampshire County Council’s architects to design a building which meets the highest standards for environmental sustainability and which will provide inspiring and creative learning spaces for children to flourish.

The Barton Farm Academy benefits from the University’s outstanding track record in teacher education and extensive regional school partnerships, our evidence-based learning and teaching, our powerful links with local business and community organisations, and our passionate commitment to social justice and sustainability.

Barton Farm Academy is a feeder primary for the Henry Beaufort School. We are working closely with them to ensure that children have a seamless transition to their secondary school. Our partnership will mean that Kings Barton is truly a learning community, with lifelong learning opportunities from the early years right through to higher education. Find out more about the Henry Beaufort School here.
