Welcome to Temple Hill Primary Academy 


I am delighted to welcome you to Temple Hill Primary Academy, and our website!  Temple Hill is a rapidly improving community school with many significant strengths.  When Ofsted judged Temple Hill to be a satisfactory school, they clearly identified these  strengths, and we continue to build on these. 


I am very proud to be the Executive Headteacher of Temple Hill. I am determined to ensure all Temple Hill children have the best opportunities for learning, and are able to leave Temple Hill at the end of their primary careers, ready to take on the challenges of secondary school.


Temple Hill works closely with Oakfield Primary Academy in a federation of the two schools. Over the coming terms and years, children of Temple Hill will have additional opportunities to work with Oakfield.


Temple Hill has lots to offer the children and families that it serves. We welcome visitors to the school. I hope you enjoy our website and if you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
