A letter from the Chair of Governors.

I am extremely proud to be the chair of the governing body of Hamstead Junior School. As governors we are committed to working as part of a group of people dedicated to making our school the very best that it can be, thereby ensuring that every child learns and grows in a safe environment where they are happy,  inspired and challenged to achieve to the best of their ability.


We believe that we all have an important part to play in realising our School Vision. Education is not something that is just for teachers. We can and must all work together to secure for all our children the very best possible start in life.


Our school is enormously lucky to be led by Mr Bowen who, supported by Mr Fowler, works tirelessly to instil within our entire school staff his own ambition for each and every child - that they should reach their full potential in every aspect of their development.  I am confident that under their strong and decisive leadership Hamstead is secured a bright and successful future.


We look forward to standing and working alongside you during the years that your child is a part of that future.


Lynn Howard
