Welcome from the Head of School

A very warm welcome to William Byrd Primary Academy’s website.

I am very proud to be Head of our wonderful school and have the privilege of working with a dedicated and talented team of staff, hard-working and engaging pupils and supportive and proud parents.

Our 5 ‘Guiding Powers’ are our core values and underpin daily life here at William Byrd: Kindness and Respect, Resilience, Curiosity and Readiness to Learn, Cooperation and Aspiration.

Based in Harlington, we are a happy, busy three-form entry primary school set in expansive, leafy grounds. We converted to Academy status in September 2017 and are part of the Middlesex Learning Partnership family. We are proud to work alongside our new primary and secondary partners, Belmore Primary Academy and Barnhill Community High School, to ensure the highest standards of education and academic achievement for all. The Trust motto is ‘Together, achieving our very best’ which represents our sense of community, collaboration and aspiration.

I hope you find our website to be informative and helpful, as well as being a good introduction to life at William Byrd. We are very proud of our school and would love to show you around so please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you would like to arrange a visit.

Welcome from the Chief Executive 

We are a Trust with great ambitions for the young people of Middlesex, ambitious for their futures, ambitious for their achievements and ambitious for their personal development. Students are at the heart of everything we do and our commitment to these values is unwavering.

In line with the ethos of the best schools in the country, our academies are always pushing the boundaries of learning and encouraging both students and staff to strive to reach their full potential.

Our mission is to ensure that students and pupils recognise the importance of learning and the transformative power that education has to level the playing field for all pupils and students.  We want them to be equipped to flourish in a rapidly changing world and we want our staff to celebrate the priceless contributions they make to students’ lives.

As a growing Trust we have harnessed the synergy that comes through schools with similar values working together. Through the work done in our Trust, our academies have all become more successful and able to offer a broader range of support, collaboration and services to all of our stakeholders.   Our academies have the capacity to deliver more together, united behind our common goals, our partners and commitment to the future generations of Middlesex.
