About Us

Harmondsworth Primary School is situated on the edge of the village of Harmondsworth close to Heathrow Airport and the Bath Road. The present school was completed in 1975 in the grounds of the previous school building which was erected in 1907 and is now used as a village Community Centre.

Our school aims to serve its community and, in partnership with the community, aims to produce confident, responsible, well educated pupils, in an environment which values effort as well as recognising achievement.

Our school is a partnership of Children, Staff, Parents and Governors with the children as its focus.

Our aim within the school is to assist children to achieve their maximum potential in a happy, lively and carefully planned environment, which will respond to the needs of every child in a sensitive, caring and flexible manner.

We offer children opportunities to learn about and explore the surrounding world, their peers and themselves.  We aim to provide a variety of teaching resources and methods.  Children are helped to monitor success and failure and develop positive self-images.

Our School Log Books show there has been a school in the village for over 100 years. The villages of Harmondsworth and Longford are served by the school, as are areas along the Bath Road and parts of West Drayton. We are a "village" school, unique in the London Borough of Hillingdon, maintaining strong local contacts and ties with the village. Parents are most welcome to visit at any time. In order to ensure that the headteacher is available, it is advisable to make an appointment beforehand.
