Grange Primary School

Welcome to Grange Primary School

We hope that the time you and your family spend with us will be happy and rewarding

It is my pleasure to welcome Grant Small to the Principal role at Grange Primary School for the next six and a half years.

Grant will no doubt build upon the work he has commenced during the first two terms with a view to the longer term. This offers an opportunity for forward planning, the development of shared vision and consolidation of quality practice.

Grant brings with him a breadth of professional experience,  as past school principal at Swallowcliffe Preschool-7 School, Elizabeth Vale Preschool-7 and the Reception -10 School, Open Access College and as a curriculum leader in 2014 with the Numeracy and Literacy Unit.

Grant is highly regarded amongst his colleagues and school communities and offers Grange a commitment to building on the school's significant strengths and leading it into a positive and progressive future.

I look forward to the exciting years ahead.

Warm regards,

Jenny Sommer
Education Director
