Principal’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to our Outstanding primary school. Founded on ‘Fun, Creativity and Achievement’.

We believe we have a very special school where children are encouraged to thrive socially and academically.

We have the very highest aims for all of our children, and have in place an ambitious school curriculum that challenges our pupils, encouraging them to make connections in learning and enabling them, as they grow, to be critical and evaluative thinkers.


for learning

We believe in making sure our children are given the right opportunities to develop a passion for learning, and we are very fortunate to have an exceptional team of teachers who work incredibly hard to provide the most excitement and innovative learning experiences to truly engage them.

From becoming fossil hunting paleontologists in Reception, to leading a marketing team pitching a concept car to Jaguar Landrover in Year Six, we strive to give our children real purpose and meaning to their learning at all opportunities.

We use the most innovative technology to further enhance this experience; for example our children really love exploring the past and the world through VR! Academically, our children achieve exceptionally well, and our school results are consistently significantly above national figures.

Ensuring that our children develop social empathy and demonstrate the skills needed to make a positive contribution to their school and wider community is equally important to us as their academic achievement.

Respect, Resilience, Caring, Co-operation, Self-Discipline and Aspiration.

Our values system, which is integral to all that we do here at Preston Hedge’s,  promotes and rewards the children demonstrating our fundamental values of: ‘Respect’, ‘Resilience’, ‘Caring’, ‘Co-operation’ ‘Self-Discipline’ and ‘Aspiration’.

We are very proud that our children demonstrate these values both inside and out of school, and we often see our pupils and families giving up their precious personal time in order to support local and national charities and causes.


Our children feel included, respected, happy and safe and we are continuously inspired by how much they help and support one another.

Our school community is increasingly one of wonderful diversity, and we have a superb pupil team of Equality and Diversity Champions in place to make sure that all members of our Preston Hedges family feel fully represented and see themselves and each other in the curriculum and in our wider school activities.



Preston Hedges Primary School is an Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ two form entry primary school in the West of Northampton. We currently have 420 pupils on roll who come from our local community of Wootton Fields and Wootton Village. We are proud to be an outstanding school, as it recognises the hard work and commitment of our wonderful children, our talented team and our supportive parents.



Built on the vision of ‘Fun, Creativity and Achievement.'

Everyone at Preston Hedges Primary School is committed to ensuring that each and every child is provided with an outstanding start. We will strive to make sure that through the very best innovative and creative learning experiences, children will become life-long confident learners, who are ready to make a positive contribution to society.
