I’ve been a little unpredictable of late with the days and times that these blogs get published. Once again I am having to break with tradition as I am on a three day Headteachers’ Conference starting tomorrow and not returning until late Sunday evening. I have decided to write it a day early to ensure there is something online for the end of the week. (Next week is looking a little problematic too!) On Saturday, we hosted the district ‘A’ Team Netball rally. The rain stayed away although it was quite cold at times but it was a fantastic morning. Our team played some very impressive netball and got through to the knockout stages without losing a match. They played William Ransom in the semi-finals and then played Ickleford in the final. Both games were exceptionally close but I am pleased ...

Last week we made chocolate using icing sugar, butter and chocolate powder. It was dark chocolate for our topic, we made it for an adult at home. We brought our chocolates home and gave them to our parents for a present for Easter and we made a card for them as well to celebrate Easter. Then we had a holiday for 2 weeks! The first day back at school we went on audacity in the morning and the afternoon because we have done the most Mathletics certificates in the school (40). We did maths of revision of addition and subtraction. James found out that Whitehill is in the finals of the best schools in the country!!!   Isobel and James...

This week we researched the Romans and we found out some amazing facts like the Julius calendar months. In maths we did a bit of rounding up and down. The rule was 5+ round up 4- round down. We all moved our English and maths seats so we had to move all of our stuff. In sports we did tag rugby, cricket and netball. Also we baked chocolate rice crispy cakes, they were yummy!

Welcome To Our Website

Welcome to the Whitehill Junior School website. I hope that our site will not only give you a flavour of the ethos and expectations of our school, but will also highlight many of the amazing opportunities that the pupils at Whitehill will be offered in their four years with us.

These are very exciting times for everyone associated with Whitehill as we look to build upon its many previous successes. The school has a reputation for developing its pupils as ‘learners’ through the extensive range of activities  they experience in the classroom  coupled with our extra-curricular enrichment  programme. Education is all about the process rather than an end product and at Whitehill we aim to nourish and maintain that natural drive and curiosity whilst striving to help them achieve their true potential.

A successful working partnership between home and school is essential in order to support your child in their education. To this end, communication is a key factor in ensuring  your child has a successful journey. As well as this website, parents are able to receive latest updates via our Twitter feed and also regular newsletters. This, however, cannot replace the face to face contact and dialogue that is actively encouraged between pupils, staff and parents.

If you would like to visit the school we are all very proud of, and see our community in action, one of our pupil ambassadors would be delighted to give you a guided tour. Please approach the school office for further details.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you to our school in the near future.

'I spent a delightful day at Whitehill School in November 2014, doing grammar with the children.
They were a joy to teach - very focussed and keen to answer questions - and it was clear that their teachers encourage a real interest in language, something that's often sadly lacking in primary children I meet.  It was clear from everything about the school (the corridor and classroom displays, the play areas, the clubs going on at lunchtime, the smooth-running administration and, above all, the teachers' cheerfulness and enthusiasm) that Whitehill is a really happy school, providing the sort of 'broad and balanced curriculum' that's exciting for everyone involved and turns children into committed lifelong learners.  It's always splendid to find such schools in the current educational climate, where there's immense external pressure to concentrate on a narrow tests-and-targets agenda, at the expense of other important (but probably immeasurable) aspects of primary education.  I'm sure that the Whitehill children I met will do well in national tests, but they're also lucky enough to be spending their childhood in a vibrant educational environment which, in the long run, will enrich their lives and further their careers much more than test scores.’

Since we cannot know what is needed in the future we cannot teach it in advance. Schools need to turn out children who love learning so much they can learn whatever needs to be learnt.
