WELCOME TO GREAT WOOD PRIMARY SCHOOL
We are a school that likes to celebrate success – at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We aim to bring learning alive, making it exciting and stimulating. We want to give our children a thirst for learning that continues with them throughout their future school experiences and lives. An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. We view education as a joint venture involving everyone- children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community. We hope that we will be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership hoping that we can provide the best for every child.
