Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to a new chapter in our school history.


On 1st February 2017, Keresley Grange Primary closed and Keresley Grange Academy opened. 


I invite you to share a new and exciting chapter in our future. 


In 2017 the key priorities for our school are:

  • To ensure all of our children are 'Secondary Ready' by the end of Year Six.
  • To develop a curriculum based on REAL learning opportunities.
  • To accelerate progress for children capable of achieving above age-related expectations to achieve a scaled score of 101+ and at Greater Depth.
  • To ensure boys and girls achieve at a similar level and progress at a similar rate.
  • To raise standards of writing across the school.
  • To continue to develop reading across the school through Guided Reading, Reciprocal Reading and Accelerated Reader.

My team and I have the very best interests of all children at heart; and are committed to working with parents to develop those strong and secure partnerships which best support the needs of our young people.


I have an open door approach, where you can pop in and see me if you have a concern or something to celebrate.

If for any reason I am not in school, please make an appointment or email me directly so that we can work together to make sure our community is a happy place to be and learn.
