The schools in the Alton Cluster have been collaborating for over 10 years and are looking for inspirational teachers of tomorrow to train with them.   

The Alton Cluster is made up of 15 schools located in Alton and the surrounding villages in East Hampshire, the cluster covers 3 stages - Early years, KS1 and KS2 - and offers a wide range of teaching experiences in Good and Outstanding; rural and town; infant, junior and all-through primary schools.  We have been collaborating for over 10 years.  

Just like children, each of our 15 schools has an individual character, shape and size, however, we are bonded by one common goal: to provide exceptional education and opportunities for every child.   “Building strong foundations for life” is our strap line and it is a phrase we live every day.

The schools in the Alton Cluster:
