Welcome to Garfield Primary School

As the Headteacher of Garfield Primary School, I warmly welcome you to our school website.

As the Headteacher of Garfield Primary School, I warmly welcome you to our school website. Whether you are an existing pupil, parent or friend, or indeed someone who would like to know more about our lovely school, I am delighted that you have taken the time to access this information.

Garfield Primary School is a successful vibrant school set in the heart of Wimbledon. We are all extremely proud of our school’s ethos and mission statement ‘To be Outstanding in all that we do’. In collaboration with this, we ensure that our Core Values of Learning; Respect, Equality, Determination, Inspiration, Friendship, Excellence and Courage, permeate through all that we do. We take pride in being a multi-cultural community.

Visitors to our school always comment on our calm and purposeful atmosphere. Garfield is a place where children embrace challenge and flourish in achievement. Our curriculum ensures that pupils receive an exciting and motivational education, which encourages them to always aspire to be the best that they can be. A wide range of after school clubs also enables continued learning outside of the classroom and provides all pupils with the opportunity to extend and excel in their talents. 

The recent July 2015 Ofsted inspection graded our school as ‘Good’, but we pride ourselves in knowing that children receive ‘Outstanding’ learning experiences, which will foster their quest for lifelong learning.

It is an absolute privilege to be the Headteacher of Garfield. I am proud of each and every stakeholder of the school and would welcome the opportunity to discuss the school aims and ethos with you in more details if you would like to visit us.

My sincere best wishes to you

Michèle Thomas
