What says..

Junior school located in its own well-kept period building (now refurbished with air-conditioning and new flooring), with a self-contained, green (Astroturf) and pleasant playground.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2013, Mrs Silvana Silva, BEd (50s), who arrived at the school in 1989 as a classroom teacher and has stayed ever since (‘I absolutely love working here’). Prior to her present elevation, she spent 11 years as deputy head, so has overseen a relatively seamless transition. A north Londoner by background, she attended St Michael’s Catholic Grammar, before taking a degree in education at Roehampton University (‘I always knew I wanted to be a teacher’).
