Welcome to George Mitchell School
I wish you a very warm welcome to George Mitchell All-Through School.
George Mitchell School is a popular and successful All-through school educating children across three phases: Early Years, Primary and Secondary. Being an all-through school gives us great opportunities to tailor our curriculum and provision to the needs of every child and we are continuously looking at ways to stretch and challenge our students.
Our school serves a richly diverse area, with many ethnic groups and languages represented. We are very much a community school at the heart of a local neighbourhood, and we provide a haven in which our children feel safe, valued and happy. Every child at George Mitchell is special. We do our utmost to ensure that each student is given every opportunity to learn and succeed and that every student leaves George Mitchell School equipped with the skills and attributes necessary to meet the challenges of the world today. Students leave George Mitchell having been enriched by our diversity and as responsible adult citizens, ready to meet the demands of modern British life.
George Mitchell is a school with great strengths. Students are eager to learn and take pride in their school. They are perfect ambassadors for us. I encourage all parents and carers to visit the school and experience our unique learning community for themselves. I am proud to be leading a school as exceptional as ours.
