Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome from the Headteacher


​I am so very proud and honoured to welcome you on behalf of all the team at Pirehill First School.

We believe that children have just one childhood; we want their earliest school experience to be an exciting, magical and fun-filled journey, packed with inspirational and unforgettable learning experiences.


We encourage our children to explore, to invent and to create. By steering their natural curiosity we develop children who are confident, bold and prepared to be challenged. Our children learn about, and have confidence in, themselves as learners. They set themselves goals and have high aspirations for their future. We aspire to build individual learning powers and enjoy an ethos that builds high levels of self-esteem; instils a strong determination to succeed and promotes a thirst for life-long learning.
