A Message from the Head of Primary


I’d like to welcome you to George Mitchell Primary Phase. We are proud of our lovely school and how we work together with our families to provide a caring and happy space where each individual can thrive.

We are fortunate to have a highly dedicated staff team who will go that extra mile.  We also know how important the role is that parents play and so welcome your involvement in your child’s education and in the life of our school.

Families are encouraged to contact any of our staff in the playground, by appointment or through Class Dojo to talk through any questions you may have at any point. We are a partnership with our children at the centre of all we do.

Wishing you well, always,

Samantha Hill, Head of Primary


Why choose GM Primary for your child?


Our teachers are dedicated, inspiring, fabulous. We believe in the power of education to transform lives and to bring joy. We are advocates of lifelong learning and this is as true for parents and teachers as it is for our students.

We are passionate about our curriculum and the creative opportunities afforded to our children in every year group. Our students take part in amazing projects and enrichment activities. We have high aspiration for our children – for example, our GM Aspire programme touches every age group in our school to inspire children to see Oxbridge and other top universities as a place that they belong. Please look at our galleries and Twitter feeds for a peek into the George Mitchell world!

Our systems for assessing and identifying next steps for individual children are very strong. As a result our results are excellent and above national averages in every area. Children leave the Primary Phase in Year 6 as confident, capable and happy learners.

Our EYFS provision is practical, nature-filled and engaging. Our school building is brand new, light and airy and is at the end of a no-through road with a lovely park and farmyard steps away. It is quiet, pollution-free, well-designed and filled with the sounds of nature.

But what makes GM Primary a truly wonderful place to work and learn? 400 answers: the children.

We would love to invite you to visit our school. We hold tours in September, October and January but we are always happy to accommodate a visit or Zoom at any time of year.

Come and see for yourself.
