This is a mixed two form entry community school situated in quiet surroundings on the outskirts of Harrow.  Pupils mostly come from the local area but an increasing number come from other parts of Harrow.

There have been many changes since the school was established in 1939.  Pupils from Reception to Year 6 are taught in the main building or in mobile units in the playground.

The school works to ensure that educational achievement is accompanied by personal development.  A broad based curriculum enriched by many extra related activities and experiences is provided for all pupils.

The learning environment is happy, challenging yet secure.  Display celebrates achievement and stimulates interest and inquiry.  Pupils individually and collectively take responsibility for their behaviour and develop a sense of ownership and purpose.  Links with ex-pupils and the community are strong.

 We hope that the information on this website gives you a good opportunity to learn about the work of our school.
