Our SchoolGrove Park Primary School is a one-form entry school for boys and girls between the ages of three and eleven (with a maximum of 30 pupils per class).
Grove Park Primary School is part of the education service provided by the London Borough of Hounslow. The school was opened on 7th January 1952 on a site formerly owned by London's St Thomas's Hospital. The Nursery class was purpose built and opened in 1985. The area is reminded of the link with St Thomas's Hospital by local street names, such as our own Nightingale Close.
Today, Grove Park Primary School is proud of our creative curriculum. Children learn to question and discuss their learning with their teachers. A wide variety of visits and visitors stimulate learning and provide a first hand experience and enjoyment. Teachers employ different styles of activities to accomodate the many learning styles children have.
We are proud of our healthy lifestyle and encourage the children to exercise regularly and to eat healthily. Our cook, Emma Thomas and her assistant Lisa Cull prepare well balanced lunches in our school kitchen and offer a daily side salad. The children discuss with Emma which dishes to include in the menu. Emma knows all the children well and understands their dietary requirements.
The atmosphere throughout the school is one of fun and concentration. The standard of behaviour is high and there are many ways the children learn strategies to develop their social skills. Friendship is greatly valued and our school council offers advice on how to improve the play times and lunchtimes, assuring that they go really smoothly.
