On behalf of the children, staff and governors of Lady Bankes Primary School I would like to welcome you to our website. Formally Lady Bankes Infant and Nursery School and Lady Bankes Junior School, these schools amalgamated from 1st September 2021 to create Lady Bankes Primary School.
Lady Bankes Primary School is a three-form entry primary school set in the heart of Ruislip Manor in the London Borough of Hillingdon. We currently have 616 children on roll aged from three to eleven. The school is located in a quiet road in Ruislip Manor, a short walk from the underground and bus routes. It was graded as 'good' following its Ofsted inspection on 25th and 26th April 2017. The school is situated in a wonderful Grade II listed building.
The children and their learning are at the heart of everything that we do at Lady Bankes Primary School. Everyone's contribution is valued and we have excellent relationships with different members of our school community which ensure that the school has a positive and welcoming environment. We are an extremely successful school. Our academic results for the Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two are higher that the local and national results, with some placing the school in the top 20% nationally.
We have a wide range of extra-curricular clubs, visits and opportunities for the children to take part in. We have significant sporting success with the school regularly representing Hillingdon borough at the London Youth Games in events such as basketball and athletics.
The school is served by a committed, pro-active governing body whose members execute their duties in a highly professional and supportive manner. The governors' dedication to the Lady Bankes Primary School ensures strategic management and accountability at all levels.
The school's parent community- Friends of Lady Bankes School (FOLBA)- works with enthusiasm and generosity raising funds throughout the year to help support projects at Lady Bankes Primary School. Most recently this has included the installation of a climbing frame (January 2023) in our lower playground for the children to enjoy.
Lady Bankes Primary School is a vibrant place of learning and it is my privilege to be the school's Headteacher. I hope that you will find that this website gives you an insight into our wonderful school life.
Mrs Kate Needs, Headteacher
