Welcome to Primrose Hill

We warmly welcome you to Primrose Hill Primary School. We hope your child will have a happy and calm start and we look forward to working together with you to provide a successful beginning to your child’s education.

Primrose Hill is a two form entry Primary School occupying an impressive, listed, Victorian building in a beautiful part of London.

The school looks out on to Regent’s Canal and is near to a number of interesting places such as London Zoo, Camden Market and Regent’s Park, all of which are visited by the children. The two large playgrounds offer a range of learning opportunities including sports facilities, a garden and inspiring spaces for creative play. In addition, the separate Nursery building has its own enclosed playground.

Construction has been completed on a new 2 Year Old Nursery Provision called The Froglets.  This is a space for 24 children in a bespoke new building and we are very excited about it.

This is also part of a wider project to redevelop our lower ground EYFS Facilities and to re-house Y1 alongside a new Reception Learning space, and essentially creating an exciting ‘Early Years Hub’.  We are also about to commence a significant capital investment into replacing windows, heating and electrics.   In addition to this, we are hoping to acquire our own Canalside Classroom in 2017.

At Primrose Hill we aim to maximise children’s achievement by removing barriers to learning through a varied, inclusive curriculum delivered in a safe, stimulating environment. The success of this approach can be seen not just in the fantastic academic results our children achieve, but also in the confidence and enthusiasm for learning our well-rounded children exude.

As a primary school, we believe we have a key role in society in combating discrimination and promoting fairness, justice and equality through our teaching and in the role models we offer. We believe our children’s successes affirm this work and are passionate about ensuring they own these values. We welcome families to come and visit our school and see the children enjoying their learning.

We hope the information contained on this website will help you to understand more about starting at Primrose Hill. If you would like to know more you are welcome to visit us by contacting the school to make an appointment.
