I am delighted to welcome you to our school. There is something very special about Wordsworth that people notice as soon as they step through the door. We are incredibly proud of our children and supportive staff team who work together in a friendly and caring way to provide a safe and happy learning environment.
We hope this website will give you a hint of what our school is about, but this can never replace first-hand experience. We would encourage you to come and see us in action and speak to our staff and children yourself.
As your new Headteacher my first priority is on fully re-opening the school as safely as possible, in order for everyone to enjoy learning together again. I will be explaining more about the long term vision for the school over the coming months.
Wordsworth is a large primary school, re-built in 2013, in the Shirley area of West Southampton. We aim to work closely with families to give every child the best possible education. The school prides itself on providing a wide ranging curriculum; making the most of our own nature zone, dance studio, music room and playing fields right in the heart of Shirley.
Children achieve extraordinary things at Wordsworth School. Each year they explore new frontiers within our broad curriculum, put on spectacular plays, perform in concerts and complete against local teams. Other quieter successes make us equally proud and happen every day – maybe a fear is overcome or something new attempted.
I am confident that your child will be happy in our school and I look forward to working with you and your family to achieve the very best for your child.
I would be very glad to show you around our school. Please ring the school office to make an appointment.
