Welcome to Townhill Community School

A welcome from our headteacher.....

Welcome to the website for Townhill Community School.  Having had two sons go through the education system myself, I am well aware of the importance of the choices you make in selecting the right school for your child.  Hopefully a tour of this website will help you make the right informed decision.


Townhill Community School is, as the name suggests, a happy, calm and supportive community where our mission statement, ‘Putting Children First’, is not merely a claim, but a fact.  We have a team of almost 70 teachers and staff in the school that, without exception, will always go the extra mile to ensure that your child is happy, secure in their learning and working towards their full potential. 


You will find that the school is well resourced and geared up to providing an engaging, purposeful and forward looking curriculum and our aim is to prepare our pupils as 21st Century learners who are capable of continuing a successful learning journey in the comprehensive school.  To this end, for example, we provide a 1-1 ratio of ipad to pupil in our year 5 and 6 classes in order to digitally enhance the children’s learning in line with the likely expectations and demands of the coming age.  We also provide a number of forums in which children can speak, present and express their feelings therefore increasing their confidence and aspirations.


We are a Restorative School and a Rights Respecting School and our ethos is based on mutual respect, empathy and understanding.  Townhill Community School is a flagship school for Restorative Practice and arrangements for the safeguarding and wellbeing of our children was recognised as being outstanding in the recent ESTYN inspection.


If you remain unconvinced about our school after you have considered the snapshot that our continuously developing website provides, please don’t hesitate to come and see us for an informal chat.  We will look forward to welcoming you.
