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 and nurture the unique talents of each of our children, alongside their academic achievements.  We promote a strong partnership between staff, children and their families and are committed to the individual achievement, personal growth and pursuit of excellence for every child that attends our school.  

Our ethos is built on mutual respect and is underpinned by our school values - 'Aim High, Have Courage, Be Kind'. We provide a high level of challenge for all children, regardless of their ability and develop confident, independent and articulate learners who develop the resilience to enable them to adapt to the challenges of the ever-changing world. 

Success is something we readily celebrate, both academically and personally. We develop the self-confidence and self-esteem of our children to enable them to be the best that they can be. We are proud of the positive attitudes, enthusiasm and engagement they consistently demonstrate and children have a strong voice in shaping 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
