We are a culturally and socially diverse school and we welcome the richness that this brings to our school community. We value children as individuals, and help them to understand their role as members of the school and of the wider community and to see how they can contribute to a better society.
William Patten has a strong tradition of academic, artistic and musical excellence. Our children are encouraged in self-expression from the moment they enter the school. We employ specialist music teachers and develop many project links with arts organisations to help children develop their creativity, whether through music, visual or performance arts. We regularly give and attend performances and exhibitions and have many ways of celebrating achievement in these areas.
We recognise the vital part parents play in their children’s learning and are committed to developing partnerships with parents. Every parent and carer belongs to the school’s Parents, Teachers & Friends Association (PTFA), which fosters close educational and social links between school and home.
We welcome visitors to the school and recommend that you experience the distinctive character and ethos of the school for yourself. Just make an appointment to visit by calling Jane or Rita in the school office on 0207 254 4014 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please feel free to contact us should you have any further questions.
If you would like paper copies of any of our documentation, please call in at the school office.
We have two dates coming up for prospective parents to visit – Thursday 14th October 2021 and Thursday 6th January 2022. Please call or email to book a place. For those unable to visit in person, we are happy to share our school’s film below. We hope that this provides an insight into the ethos of William Patten, as well as the opportunities we offer as part of our rich and diverse curriculum and the facilities that are available to enhance teaching and learning and wellbeing.
