Welcome to Over Hall Primary School
“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day,
a fresh try, one more start,
with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.”
-J. B. Priestly
I am delighted to herald the start of a new school year. This is a wonderful time within the school calendar when children and adults are full of excitement and are so keen to continue their learning journey.
It is also very special in that this year begins a new chapter for Over Hall Community School. The Minister of State for Education has confirmed that as from 1st September the school becomes an Academy, part of the HTI Multi- Academy Trust.
The aims of Over Hall Community School continue to be directed towards preparing children for life beyond school by developing the highest standards to which we can all aspire to, and by providing high quality learning experiences. As Headteacher, it is my duty to ensure that children are safe, happy and learning but it is also my privilege to try to make it a time of ‘awe and wonder’.
Becoming part of HTI Multi Academy Trust is a new beginning for our community offering an opportunity for a ‘fresh try’. I have faith that the Directors of the Trust will encourage and enable the school to be even better and that they will take the school from ‘Good to Great’ – perhaps bringing ‘magical moments’ along the way.
As we move through the term, I will continue to keep you informed of any further developments or news. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss any matters relating to the school or community.
