New Horizons Bluebell Primary

New Horizons Academy Trust is delighted to announce that the Secretary of State for Education has decided that our application to open a brand new primary school right here in West Durrington should proceed to the "pre-opening phase". This is a significant step towards us being able to open New Horizons Bluebell Primary:

  • A brand new building with brand new resources.

  • Outstanding teaching staff who know the West Durrington area and community.

  • Open to all pupils.

  • Places for 420 children aged 4 - 11 when full.


  • The earliest possible opening date for New Horizons Bluebell Primary is September 2019. The opening date is more likely to be September 2020.

  • In its first year, the plan is for New Horizons Bluebell Primary to open with a nursery offering 32 places for 2–4 year olds and two reception classes offering places for 30 pupils in each.

  • The school would then grow year on year to become a two-form through primary school for pupils aged 4 – 11.


A site for New Horizons Bluebell Primary has been identified right here on the new Saxons Plain building development.
