About Us


I am delighted to welcome you to our school. Wordsworth is a large primary school, re-built in 2013, in the Shirley area of West Southampton. 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, and we aim to work closely with families to give every child the best possible education.

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.

We have been working hard over the last year to review and develop our school vision and values

We will build a school where everyone unites

We will build a community empowered to make a difference for generations to come.

Together we will build a future beyond our imagination.

We have carefully selected five school values that we know you will see when you step through our doors. 

  • Learning
  • Trust
  • Empowerment
  • Nurture
  • Community

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 compete 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.

Best wishes,

Julie-Anne Palfrey B.Ed hons
