Headteacher welcome

On behalf of pupils and staff, I would like to warmly welcome you to our school.

It is the intention of all staff that the children who attend our school enjoy school life to the full and strive to be the best they can be, by learning key skills to lead active healthy lives. There are many activities offered by the school, both inside and outside the classroom, which are challenging and interesting. We believe that we need to provide children with the knowledge and understanding of the wider world in order to be successful British citizens, and these are reflected in our core school aims.  Working together - staff, pupils and parents – we strive to ensure children at Town End reach their potential in everything they encounter.

We are very proud of our recent OFSTED report following a visit in June 2018. Please download here.

Mrs Lisa White
