Welcome from the Headteacher


I'm Ben Paxman, and it is an absolute pleasure to be the headteacher of this wonderful school.

Totley Primary is a successful and expanding primary school situated on the border of the Peak District in South West Sheffield, with approximately 425 pupils on roll.

Totley Primary is a happy, thriving school providing high quality education both in the classroom and throughout a wide range of extra-curricular activities. We are very proud of our children and believe they should perform well academically and also develop as people.

Totley Primary is part of the Mercia Learning Trust along with King Ecgbert School, Mercia School, Newfield School, Nether Edge Primary and Woodlands Primary. 

Our expectations for every Totley child are high; excellence and enjoyment are at the heart of all we will seek to do. We believe in the potential of every child, providing opportunities and enabling them to thrive in our caring environment. 

Our staff team are central to our success. They drive and accelerate the outstanding provision we offer to our community and we want the very best people to join us.
