Successful Start to the Sporting Season
I will start this week’s blog by thanking those of you who asked after me and my ‘man flu’. Thankfully it did clear up by Sunday evening and I was back in full flight on Monday morning. I’ve had to apologise to a couple of people who I came into contact with in meetings at the end of last week and who have since come down with a cold! Whoops! The term is well under way now, and the classes are finding their feet. In talking with the class teachers, it is interesting to hear how the pupils have settled and how they are coping with the demands of their new year groups. The Year 6s, for example, are having to think about the secondary schools already and will soon be visiting the local schools to make their choice for life after Whitehill. Expectations across the board ar...

Sympathy Required (Please)!
It’s as if we haven’t been away! I mentioned last week how quickly the pupils had settled back into life at Whitehill and I want to say ‘well done’ again to our new Year 3s who continue to impress. I visited Mrs Avey at Highbury earlier in the week and was able to share my thoughts as to the way transition has gone this year. She was obviously very pleased indeed. Long may it continue! I have continued to visit classrooms during the week and the pupils have been hard at work. These visits are a great way for me to get to know the pupils more and to see the work they are doing. It is great when someone wants to show me what they have been getting up to, and on a visit earlier today I saw a wonderful volcano picture produced by Edward in Year 4 and also some other crea...

Welcome Back
    I must start my first blog of the new school year by welcoming our Year 3 pupils and our new families to Whitehill. I have been really impressed with the way the pupils have settled and it has been lovely to chat with them at break and lunchtimes and hear about all the things they got up to over the summer break. Mrs Walton and Miss Harvey have also commented on the quality of the work they have been producing and I have also seen this first hand on my (many) visits to their classes this week. Well done to everyone! In fact, the atmosphere around the whole school is very positive and certainly very productive. We had our first Achievers’ Assembly this morning and I must say, “Well done,” to Earth House on being the first recipients of the House Cup this...

I've Made It!
  I’ve made reference to the speed with which this year has flown by on a number of occasions, and therefore it is only fitting I do so again at the start of my final blog of the year. It really doesn’t feel that long ago I was taking my very first Whitehill assembly and introducing myself as the ‘new head’. So much has happened since then, the majority of which I have reflected upon in my ‘weekly ramblings’ but for me, the two most important things have been getting to know the pupils and learning as many of their names as possible! It is a shame the current Year 6s are leaving, as I would have loved to work with them for longer. They have been a real credit to themselves and to Whitehill. I have no doubt they will continue to impress at their new schools, and I ...

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

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.
