About our School
St Lawrence CE Primary School was built in 1840 in the grounds of St Lawrence Church. A library was added in 2004 and a school hall in 2007.
It is set in a peaceful, picturesque setting but one which has a rich history. A civil war battle took place in the churchyard and cavaliers were held under siege in the church for a time.
St Lawrence is a small school with seven classes in the heart of the beautiful market town of Alton. The school makes good use of the rich and diverse community in which it is situated.
The school has a small playground and makes use of the grassed areas surrounding the church for recreation and games sessions. It is situated next door to Amery Hill Secondary School and utilises their facilities to the full, including their music and sports amenities
