Academy Information

Willowbrook Mead Primary Academy is a happy, stimulating and caring place that expects high standards of behaviour and good manners throughout the school.

Willowbrook Mead Primary has well-resourced, spacious rooms and attractive surroundings. The extensive school grounds have been developed to support learning, providing an exciting and safe environment for all children to enjoy. The school has a nursery for 3 year olds that is fully included in school life and prepares the children well as they move on to Reception.

There is a driving determination to ensure that children and adults in the school thrive and be the best that they can be. Dance, drama, sport, school visits and musical opportunities are a core element of the school’s curriculum. Willowbrook Mead Primary offers a breakfast club every morning and provide a range of after school activities for its children.

The school looks to find every child’s talents, abilities and strengths and build upon them.
