About us

We are a successful and popular primary school set on the edge of the beautiful Hampshire coast and the New Forest National Park.

If you come to visit Milford on Sea Primary School, you will experience a school that is safe, caring and an exciting place to learn. We put the child at the centre of everything we do and value well-being and character education, alongside academic success.

The team here strive for consistently outstanding outcomes that allow MOSPS pupils to achieve their dreams and be ambitious. Pupils leave here ready for secondary school and beyond, having experienced a broad and rich curriculum with opportunities to excel in sports, music, arts and languages.

What do we want?

We want to buy Micro:bits - enough for a class to use together. 

Who is this for?

This is for our whole school, to use across a range of subjects.

Why do we want it?

This will have a big impact on supporting the children's coding skills as well as providing excellent cross-curricular opportunities, especially with Design & Technology.


15 x BBC Micro:bit with inventors kit and accessories @ £39.58 each

Total = £593.70 (incl VAT & delivery)


If we're fortunate enough to raise more than our target, then we would also like to buy some accessories to add to the Micro:bit kit.
