Welcome to Carr Hill Primary School
Those of you who know our school will appreciate just how special a learning community we have established here in Carr Hill. Our pupils are magnificent and we celebrate on a daily basis their individual and collective efforts as they contribute towards ensuring their teachers focus on raising aspiration, raising achievement and raising happy, sociable young learners who are proud to attend our school.
As Headteacher, never a day goes by without me being grateful for the tremendous efforts of our staff and the outstanding relationships that exist with our pupils which spur on their hunger for learning and pride in their school.
So, enjoy your visit and please feel comfortable to engage with us where you can.
