Grange Primary School

Grange Primary School is situated in Bermondsey, very close to Tower Bridge and many other places of historical and cultural interest in the centre of London. The school was built in the early 1900s and has recently had some renovation and updating. The children benefit from a large playground with a garden, grassy area and multi-use games area.

The school currently has approximately 300 pupils on roll, aged between three and eleven. We are a community school, funded and maintained by Southwark Council. In recognition of the economic challenges a number of our families face a range of organisations, such as the Worshipful Company of Weavers and PWC, offer support in many ways.

Our children voted for four core values: Love, Hope, Cooperation and Respect, which underpin everything we do. The children are encouraged to strive to achieve their very best and have high aspirations for the future and we positively welcome and support parents to be fully involved with their child’s learning.

As a fully inclusive school, we celebrate the diversity within our school and the wider community.

Our main aim is for our children to become independent and enthusiastic learners; ready to play a full and meaningful part in society.

At Grange Primary School, we aim to teach a highly creative and stimulating curriculum, to ensure that children learn to the best of their abilities while also having fun. We have been fortunate enough to be part of many cultural events in Southwark and through the help of STEP, children have accessed a wide range of activities and workshops with local theatres and arts organisations. At Grange, we realise that our neighbourhood is rich with many world-class arts organisations, and our aim is to foster good relationships with as many of these as possible. STEP has been a vital link between Southwark’s league of theatre practitioners and countless numbers of our pupils.
