Welcome to Whitchurch Primary School!

Our school was established in 1914 and we take great pride in educating children in a challenging, exciting and purposeful environment – achieving our best together.

As a friendly, happy and inclusive school that provides a caring, stimulating and supportive environment, we will work with determination to help all children develop their full potential. We are proud of their achievements and celebrate their success.

Through our school values of respect, friendship, courage, determination, excellence and awareness, we encourage positive social skills, self-respect and a caring attitude towards all others in the school and the wider community. The dedicated and committed staff team understand and relish the importance of every day in each child's life and we believe that all our children have the right to the best possible learning experiences during their time with us.

At Whitchurch Primary School our children feel safe, happy and challenged. We are proud of our high standards and recognise that our achievements are created and sustained through a strong partnership between home and school. Together we have founded a thriving school community, established on a shared commitment to ensuring outstanding provision for all.
