Hot, Hot, Hot!
Despite the temperatures, the pupils have been exceptionally productive again this week and once again achieved so much. I have noticed the increased use of the ICT suite which might in some way be down to the fact that this is one of two rooms with air conditioning. I must admit, the Leadership Team did have ‘first dibs’ on it after school on Wednesday for our meeting as my room resembled one of Mrs Stokes’ ovens! Our Year 5s visited the Priory School on Monday to work with author Tom Moorhouse. Both Dr Christie and Mr Denney were very impressed with the work the pupils completed and the mature approach in the questions and answers session. Our thanks go to the Priory for giving our pupils the opportunity to take part in this type of experience and also for providing ...

Not Quite the Part 2!
Apologies for not getting round to the ‘Part 2’ blog I said might appear after our night out in London, however time was not on my side this week. Instead, I will start this week’s blog where I left off last week and update you on a great evening for the staff team and the School. Hopefully you were able to follow on Twitter the events of last Friday and see some of the photographs from the dinner, the awards and the ‘entertainment’. I will, if I get round to it, ‘tweet’ a few more which were taken by Miss Hudemann throughout the evening. I thought we ‘scrubbed up well’, even if I do say so myself and it was a lovely reward for the amazing job my team do on a daily basis. The food was delicious, the wine was hideously expensive and Greg Davies was hysterical. Despite n...

5AC Blog
On Thursday 18th June 2015 we had the Whitehill’s Got Talent finals.  There was a range of acts from singing to comedy and everybody did really well. The teachers had some prizes for the winner. To get to the grand finals you had to get from the first round to the year group semi-finals and if you got through that, you got to the grand finals! The winner of upper school was Caitlin in 5GD and the winners of lower school were Tommy and Max on the cornets! In class we have been reading a book called Kensuke’s Kingdom. It’s about a boy who gets washed up on an island and struggles to survive on his own. When he goes to sleep on the island, he finds food and water next to him. He is not alone… We have also painted pictures in the style of the Great Wave by Hokus...

Sue Palmer Testimony

December 2014spt

Website: www.suepalmer.co.uk

'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.’

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.

Mr Steve Mills
Headteacher

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.
