Working for us

Head Teacher's Welcome

The Victory Primary School is part of United Learning. In 2010 our school moved into a brand new building with state of the art facilities. We are looking for excellent staff to take us on our journey to Outstanding.


We were OFSTED rated good in May 2015, to view a copy of the full report please click here.

The School 

The Victory Primary School is a new school on the outskirts of Portsmouth that serves a lively and cohesive community. The school, which opened in November 2010, is one of the best equipped schools in the area and we are very proud of all the facilities we are able to offer the children and our community. 

We have cutting edge ICT equipment, with over 200 mobile devices in the school for children to use and Interactive Boards in every classroom. 

The school is set on a large plot of land and we are fortunate enough to have two large playgrounds and five smaller playgrounds in the school. We also have an all-weather pitch which we can use for outdoor games and community use. 
A recent priority of the school has been to develop the indoor learning environment in order that it contributes to learning. The learning environment is now outstanding and to see more images of the inside of the school please visit our website. 
We strive to match our outstanding facilities and technology with outstanding provision for the children in our school. This was reecognised by ofsted during their visit in 2015 when the school was judged good.

Staff Testimonials

I am the Attendance and Inclusion Officer and I have worked in the Victory Primary School for 4 years. It is a great place to work, the children are generally really enthusiastic about school and try really hard. Staff work as part of a team and are really supportive of each other and the children. The assembly's are legendary, just ask the children why. 
Mrs S Carpenter - Attendance and Inclusion Officer

I am the School Sport Co-ordinator at The Victory Primary School. Since being here the school has achieved great success in various sports which include: dance, athletics, football, netball, basketball and cheerleading. The school takes part in many competitions which the children really enjoy. The staff are friendly and this is a great environment to work in. 
Mrs K Unitt - School Sport Co-ordinator

Back in the mists of time (1980s) I began my career in one of the schools that became The Victory. 15 years later I returned and what an excellent choice that was. Paulsgrove is a unique area and the staff at Victory are just as unique. The staff have one common aim - to help the children to succeed, and in doing that we are supportive of the children, families and each other. That's not to say we don't let our hair down - our rendition of "Let it go" is 2nd to none. So glad I came back. 
Mrs L Counsell - Year 1 Teacher
