Welcome from our Head

Graham Clifford

Welcome to the website for Willow Brook Primary, an Ofsted-judged ‘Outstanding’ school. Willow Brook is a vibrant and exciting community where pupils are given wonderful opportunities to learn, develop and shine.

 

Our curriculum includes specialist teaching in art, music, computing, modern foreign languages, Philosophy for Children (P4C) and P.E. This remarkable provision ensures that our children develop a love of learning and become well-rounded individuals with a very wide range of skills. This aspiration and ambition underpins everything and our values based ethos gives our children a strong sense of purpose. Our location means that we are uniquely situated to get the very best opportunities for our children: we are near vast, green open spaces; minutes away from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford and we have easy access to all the galleries, museums and theatres that London has to offer.
 
As proud members of the Griffin Schools Trust, a family of schools and a supportive network of educational expertise, we work very closely with other schools locally and nationally. Our annual Griffin Arts Festival is well established and a beacon of excellence for the arts. Our school is a stunning mix of old and new and our bright and well-resourced learning spaces are exceptional. We are steeped in history, yet our school is light, bright and modern.
 
As our school motto states, Ad Altiora Tendo – We Strive for Higher Things and we really do reach for the stars. Come and visit the school and meet our dedicated staff and fantastic children. Everyone wants to be a part of it.
 

‘The lively atmosphere and the buzz of activity in the school reflect the pupils’ real enthusiasm for learning. Pupils enjoy coming to a school where they are encouraged to aim high.’

 
‘This is an outstanding school.’
