The heart of the village for many who have moved here (including my family) is the fantastic village school - well supported and with a brilliant PTA and Governing body as well as a superb Head-teacher in Andy Dury and his dedicated staff:

 

Wanborough Primary School

As well as school, church, scouts - there is the sporting side of Wanborough. I spent 10 years with Wanborough Junior Football Club as a coach, manager and Chairman - I can thoroughly recommend the club as a positive environment for boys and girls to develop both sporting and social skills:
