INTRODUCTION FROM THE HEAD TEACHER
Welcome to our school website! We are a large primary school in Brent and serve a very diverse community, with over 32 different first languages spoken by our children and families.
We are situated over two sites, one on Hawkshead Road, NW10 9UR and one on Brentfield Road, NW10 8HE. There are currently 742 pupils attending the school. Leopold Hawkshead has 460 pupils from Nursery to Year 6. Leopold Gwenneth Rickus currently has 282 pupils from Reception to Year 6. Our future aim is to strengthen the community even further by providing nursery education at the Gwenneth Rickus site.
We pride ourselves on our warm, caring ethos and have a strong reputation for this and for the way in which we celebrate every child’s uniqueness. We have high expectations for all our children in terms of their work and behaviour, offering both challenge and support, to enable them to achieve their very best.
Our aim is to provide children with rich and memorable learning experiences in an ever-changing world, and to foster a love of learning, so that our children become confident individuals and responsible citizens. We are very proud of our school, of the pupils, the parents, grandparents and extended families. We are also proud of our community cohesion links, our strong PTFA and our governors.
We continue our commitment for high standards and to an inclusive ethos.
You are welcome to contact us if you wish to find out any more about the school or to arrange a visit.
