We wish our children to have special and happy memories of their time at Willowbrook and value highly the positive relationships we have built between children, parents, staff, governors and our neighbouring communities.

Children get one chance with their education and at Willowbrook we want this to be the best. There is a driving determination to ensure that pupils and adults in the school reach their full potential. Dance, drama, school visits and musical opportunities are a core element of our curriculum. We also offer a breakfast club every morning, have close links to the Thurnby Lodge Children’s Centre, and offer after school activities for youngsters living in the Thurnby Lodge area. Learning is celebrated and openly admired. We work and learn together with you, and go that extra mile to make families’ lives better and brighter.

The extensive school grounds have been developed to support learning, providing an attractive and safe environment for all children to enjoy. The school is a happy, stimulating and caring place and we expect high standards of behaviour and good manners throughout the school.
