The Royal Primary School is about providing every child with a solid foundation for success reflected through our five core values of Respect, Community, Initiative, Trust and Risk.
My staff and I work hard to ensure that the children enjoy learning and are continually challenged – both through the curriculum delivered daily in the classroom and through the many extra-curricular activities presented to them each term. Most of all, we want our children to gain maturity and confidence during these crucial Primary years.
It is my heartfelt belief that as teachers we can facilitate this by engaging with the children as individuals and providing them with fabulous educational experiences – not only to enhance their academic learning but to also help foster young people who will one day go on to make their mark on the world.
We are a school that learns together and proactively supports one another towards success. Our recent school inspection report highlighted this by identifying, amongst many other attributes, that the quality of our teaching as excellent.
Much has gone into making the school the success that it already is. Progress continues year on year as each September we welcome the next generation of future business leaders, doctors, artists, engineers and more.

The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
