Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to William Rhodes Primary & Nursery School.


My name is Rachel Purvis and I have been the Headteacher at William Rhodes since April 2016. I feel really proud to be leading the school through its tranformation towards becoming a good school. That change is now evident in so many ways: in our exciting and enriched curriculum; in our positive partnership with parents and in our improving outcomes for children. Everybody who works at the school is striving to provide the highest quality of education for the the very special children in our care. Each and every day, we do everything we can to ensure our school is a happy, hardworking and welcoming place, right at the heart of our community.


We hope that our detailed website will tell you everything that is so special about our school.


If you can't find what you're looking for, please do call (01296 234626) or email us ( and we'll be happy to help. If you'd like to come and visit at any time, please phone the office and make an appointment to look around.
