Welcome To Willowbrook Primary Academy
As Principal, I would like to welcome you to our academy. I hope that you will feel Willowbrook is the academy you wish to choose for your child. We wish our children to have special and happy memories of their time at Willowbrook Primary Academy and value highly the positive relationships we have built between children, parents, staff, governors and our neighbouring communities.
Children get one chance with their education and at Willowbrook we want this to be the best. There is a driving determination to ensure that pupils and adults in the academy reach their full potential. Dance, drama, school visits and musical opportunities are a core element of our curriculum. We also offer a breakfast club every morning, have close links to the Thurnby Lodge Children’s Centre, and offer after school activities for youngsters living in the Thurnby Lodge area. Learning is celebrated and openly admired. We work and learn together with you, and go that extra mile to make families’ lives better and brighter.
At Willowbrook, we have well-resourced, spacious rooms and attractive surroundings. The extensive academy grounds have been developed to support learning, providing an attractive and safe environment for all children to enjoy. The school is a happy, stimulating and caring place and we expect high standards of behaviour and good manners throughout the academy.
We are proud to be part of the RMET (Rushey Mead Educational Trust) and we benefit from working closely with other primary and secondary schools within the Trust. This is a recent and exciting development for the school that will bring even more opportunities and developments through collaboration and working together.
I would be pleased to show you around Willowbrook Primary Academy, for you to feel the friendly atmosphere here, give you the opportunity to meet the staff and see the children as they work and play together.
