Desperately seeking info before putting an offer on a house!

I'm trying to find out what Oliver's Battery Primary School is like? I've heard positives (lots of art,music,outdoor learning) but the negatives are a little worrying. I've been told it's rough and my kids need to be strong to get along there. I believe it went through a bad patch but I'm wondering if this is still the case?

Many thanks

I don't have personal experience of it (sorry!) but it might be worth looking at the facebook page of the school, often parents leave comments/rate the page which can be useful

Haven’t lived in Winchester for a while, but struggle to believe any school there would be rough?

Can you get their ofsted report?

thanks Cherry321 I have read through the Ofsted report and on paper it's good, but I would love to hear opinions from parents

you could also try joining the Winchester parents group on facebook and asking for opinions of the school there?
