Welcome to our website.
The Alton is an inclusive community school, next to Richmond Park. We are a one form entry school with a teacher and teaching assistant in each class. We have extensive facilities that offer our children a wide array of fantastic, vibrant and diverse opportunities. We are also home to a small Resource Base for children with moderate learning difficulties. We have a Breakfast Club and a vast range of co-curricular activities and after school clubs to ensure our children receive a rounded education.
We want our children to love learning and enjoy school. We spend a great amount of time and energy ensuring our curriculum is exciting, thoroughly planned and well resourced so that it provides our children with the skills and knowledge they will need for their future success in a changing world. We work hard to ensure that we develop our children’s self esteem so they feel safe and understand their uniqueness and ability to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others. We employ excellent teachers and support staff to maintain and further improve the quality of learning and teaching, and we monitor this closely.
The Alton has improved very significantly over recent years and I am extremely proud of all our successes. The children, staff, governors and parents have worked hard together to create a thriving, purposeful and welcoming school. We will continue to be uncompromising in our drive for improvement for all our children.
I hope that our website has given you an insight into some of the things that make The Alton distinctive, however, please come and visit us if you would like to find out more.
