Waverley Abbey C of E Junior School, Tilford, Farnham, Surrey
A Church of England school with the fundamental values of tolerance and love for one another that is carried across every aspect of the school. Even though it is a large (four form entry) school there is a strong family feel with the staff, children, governors and parents all working together as a team. Relationships between staff and pupils are based on mutual trust and respect, and it forges strong and active partnerships with its parent body to create a positive atmosphere for everyone within the school community.
