The Russell School

Aim High, Have Courage, Be Kind


On behalf of myself, pupils, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to The Russell School.  We are a happy and successful school, nurturing individual talents as well as academic achievements.  We believe that the happiness and success lies in a strong partnership between pupils, the school and their families. 

Our ethos is built on mutual respect and values such as kindness, resilience and challenge.  We are committed to the individual achievement, personal growth and pursuit of excellence for every child that attends our school.  We strive to develop high achieving, confident and articulate young people who develop emotional resilience to enable them to adapt to the challenges of the ever changing world as life long learners.

Success is something we readily celebrate, both academically and personally. We develop the self-confidence and self-esteem of our pupils to enable them to be the best that they can be. We are proud of the positive attitudes, enthusiasm and engagement that they consistently demonstrate in their learning.  The vision of the school 'Aim High', 'Have Courage', 'Be Kind' underpins all aspects of school life and our School Council gives children a voice to express their thoughts, share these with the rest of the school and have an impact on the future of the school.

I would be very pleased to welcome you to visit us to experience life at The Russell School. 

With best wishes,

Mrs Claire Pitt, Head Teacher
