Achieving more

Headteacher's Welcome

Sandy McNicholl

Ambler Primary School and Children’s Centre is a unique, culturally diverse, community school with children from 6 months to 11years of age. It is a place where every decision made puts the needs of the child first and foremost – a school that is aspirational for every learner.


Our school is a place where children arrive with smiles on their faces, full of questions and a desire to learn. This is due to the dedicated and passionate staff in the school who ignite learning and support the children to ‘Achieve More’ using their DREAMS qualities. The aim is to create lifelong learners ready for the 21st century, ready for the BIG WORLD!


Our enriched curriculum drives what we believe to be important. We celebrate role models and embrace equality and diversity. We place a strong emphasis on oracy, providing children with the tools to use their voice to justify their ideas. Through challenge, collaboration and problem solving we allow our children to make excellent progress and fulfil their potential.


Rated ‘Outstanding’ in the previous Ofsted, we are a school that is dynamic and innovative in order to support the needs of all children; academically and in terms of their mental health and well-being.


Most importantly, we are ‘One Ambler’ a school supported by parents, governors and Friends of Ambler with the sole aim to make school life the best it can be for every child. This is summed up in a quote from our recent parent survey:


“I love the spirit of the school and the buzz and the excitement that all the children have. It is a warm and safe place for people of any background to find a place within.”

I feel privileged to be the Head of this school and am proud to see it go from strength to strength.
