The Belham Primary School
Southwark, United Kingdom
About The Belham Primary School
The Belham Primary School is part of Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust, a small south London Multi-Academy Trust with a reputation for educational excellence. The Belham is the Trust’s second school, opened in September 2015, and will build on a two-form entry basis to full capacity by 2021.
The school is situated on Bellenden Road, at the centre of a vibrant area surrounding Peckham Rye station. We occupy a beautiful newly refurbished three-storey Grade II listed Victorian School Board for London building, designed by award-winning architects Haverstock. Our vision is a school building that will sit at the heart of the community and be well-used and well-loved by local people, with a taught curriculum reflecting the rich vibrancy of the local area: socially, culturally and ethnically. The Belham has already strengthened its standing in the community since opening, and operates lengthy waiting lists for all year groups.
Our approach to teaching offers an enriched National Curriculum that aims to foster children’s curiosity and fascination for their world, and we value the role of the arts in providing and enhancing a broad education. Children are offered a wide range of experiences to extend their understanding of themselves, and of particular importance is making use of the incredible resources we have at our fingertips as an inner London school.
We promote a positive, energetic, caring atmosphere where children always feel safe and secure and wish to come to school. We are dedicated to equality of opportunity where all children and adults are respected, regardless of race, ethnicity or ability.
