Welcome from the Head of School
We are delighted that you've shown an interest in our school and hope that you find our website useful.
My name is Harjit Chahal and I am the Head of School at Timbertree Academy. I consider it a privilege to work with the enthusiastic and fantastic children; the committed and dedicated staff team and the supportive families. that make up the Timbertree Community. At Timbertree, we encourage pupils to develop a love of learning and prepare them for the next stage of their education and future challenges. We are proud that many of our past pupils choose Timbertree for their own children.
At Timbertree, we strongly believe that every child is different, yet equally important and valued. We strive to provide a safe, caring and happy environment which nurtures all areas of a child's growth and development. We give high priority to academic excellence through our delivery of a broad-based and balanced curriculum, but also value achievement and attainment in other areas such as Sport, Technology and the Arts.
We are a one-form entry school consisting of 8 classes from Nursery through to Year 6. We have an on-site kitchen where hot and cold meals are freshly prepared each day and children can choose food from a published menu which changes every term. All our classrooms are designed to support the childrens' learning and are very consistent throughout the school. This helps children transition smoothly from one year to the next. The school has ipads and laptops which are used to enhance learning across the curriculum. Work from children is celebrated around the school on corridor displays and their achievements are marked using our rewards system. Outdoor learning is very important to us and we have an exciting Forest School tucked away at the end of our field where children get to cook on an open fire, learn woodcraft skills and explore nature.
We provide the highest quality education for children from 3 up to 11 years of age. In that time we make sure that they have lots of exciting learning opportunities to enable them to reach their full potential. After up to seven years at Timbertree we guarantee that your child will leave us as a confident individual, successful learner and a responsible citizen. We sincerely hope that your child will leave with a strong sense of achievement, satisfaction and a life long love for learning.
I hope that you will enjoy looking around our website and that it provides you with an insight into some of the wonderful opportunities that our children experience. We are all really proud of our school, and would be proud to show you all the wonderful things that happen every day. If you would like to visit, please do get in touch.
