Headteacher's welcome

Welcome to the John Hellins website and welcome to John Hellins Primary School. We are a very successful village school in Potterspury, South Northamptonshire, where we believe the children are at the heart of everything we do. We have 207 amazing children from the age of four to eleven years old. They spend seven years with us, learning as they laugh, play, concentrate and enjoy everything our school can offer.

Our ethos is simple – we all strive to ‘be the best we can be’ in every aspect of school life. We all have high expectations and achieve our challenging targets because everything we do is motivating, exciting and engaging. Our school is full of energy and enthusiasm, creativity and purpose. We achieve outstanding results by believing in balance – we work hard, but we also play hard.  Alongside lessons which are pitched to stretch all our children, we will also hold our own Strictly John Hellins ballroom dancing competition, we will train to achieve top placing’s in sports events, we will produce amazing art work and we will enjoy making daisy chains on the field. 

Our staff are fantastic, our parents are supportive and our community are proud of us. We are all working for the same goal – to be the best we can be!
