Welcome to Stillness Junior School
'Our best at all times'
Welcome from the head teacher
I am delighted to welcome you to Stillness Junior School.
I am extremely proud to be headteacher of this school. I value the achievements of our school and the enjoyment our children have in the wide variety of activities they take part in.
I believe that a good education is one of the most important gifts that can be given to a child. Stillness Junior School expects and achieves high standards of work and behaviour from its pupils. We feel strongly that each child should be seen as an individual and we are committed to ensuring they have equal opportunities to fulfil their potential.
Many people contribute to making our school the place that it is – the school staff, governors, parents/carers and of course the children. We all work together to create a school community that is a pleasant and stimulating place to learn and grow.
Stillness is located in Lewisham and caters for children from ages 7 to 11 years of age. Everyone is welcome and we pride ourselves on having developed a school with strong community ties. We are a three form entry level school with twelve classes spread across years 3 to 6 with each class having a maximum of 30 pupils.
I hope this website will help you decide whether Stillness Junior School is the right school for your child. It is even better to see for yourselves – please telephone the school and make an appointment to come and visit.
We pride ourselves on the warmth of our welcome and the friendliness of our staff and children.
