Welcome to

Ad Astra Infant School

We Are Proud To Be A Gold Level Rights Respecting School


Welcome to our wonderful Gold Rights Respecting school! I am extremely proud to be the CEO / Executive Head Teacher of Ad Astra Infant School and I am passionate about everyone doing their very best for this much-loved school.

Ad Astra is a member of the TEACH Poole Trust - The Educational Alliance Of Canford Heath - which oversees not only Ad Astra Infant School, but also Haymoor Junior School, Canford Heath Infant School and Canford Heath Junior School. Through leading all four schools and ensuring we all work together, we are able to get the best from each one, to ensure your child has the very best primary school experience possible.

I hope that the information on our website is useful to you and that you can find everything you need to know. But please do not hesitate to contact myself or the Head of School, Natalie Brown, if we can help in any way.

We look forward to working with your child, yourself and your family and to making your little one's school life as meaningful and exciting as possible.


Best wishes

Mrs Kate Carter
