Bonneville Primary School

Bonneville Gardens, Clapham, London, SW4 9LB

Bonneville is a friendly, happy and stimulating place to learn. We have a strong sense of community and we ensure that our children feel safe and nurtured.

Bonneville is a two form entry primary school situated in Clapham, South London. The school reflects the community it is part of, with children coming from a wide range of backgrounds. This diversity is celebrated as a real strength of the school.

The school is organised into 8 year groups, Nursery to Year 6 with two classes in each year group.

Key Stage 1 and 2 have three teachers assigned to every year group, whilst Early Years have an additional teacher across the phase, enabling children and teachers to benefit from smaller class sizes.

Bonneville children experience a real ‘Slice of London’ as they grow and learn. We are a delicious, bubbling pot of diversity, rich with a range of ethnicities, languages and culture. In learning from each other, we celebrate and respect that we are all different and equal.

At Bonneville, we have a strong commitment to our school vision. Our children discover and develop their strengths from the delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum, which provides a variety of opportunities for daily successes.
Our children understand that discovery never ends and develop a long lasting love of learning, understanding that hard work brings success. We pride ourselves on placing children at the heart of everything we do, so our bespoke creative curriculum reflects our community and provides the stimulus for deeper learning and lasting academic progress.

We place a high emphasis on developing children’s personal and social skills so that they are:

Enthusiastic about learning


Confident and proud


Respectful of others


We are highly conscientious for our children and fully committed to broad achievement for all.

Six Things We will Do

1. Ensure our children are experts in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, problem solving and adapting to change so they are successful no matter what the future brings.

2. Continuously work towards improving facilities and resources so children have access to quality provision.

3. Provide more opportunities for children to be creators through drama, art and music.

4. Provide more opportunities for children to be users and creators of technology by using technology across their learning and developing skills like programming.

5. Continue to embed and make outdoor learning part of our children’s educational experience through Forest School, so our children have an understanding about nature and sustainable living.

6. Give time for children to learn a foreign language with specialist teaching so the foundations of language acquisition can be further built upon, enabling them to take their place in Great Britain and the world.

Holmewood Nursery school is situated in Central Lambeth, off Brixton Hill.  The school is located in a densely populated area of contrasting households in terms of culture, ethnicity, and socio-economic status.


Holmewood provides education for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), with 95 full time equivalent places in the main nursery (2 - 4 year olds) and 12 full time equivalent places in the two year old provision.  The school's intake is very culturally diverse with a high percentage of children from mixed, or Black-British / Caribbean / African backgrounds. Nearly half of the children speak English as an additional language, with many at the early stages of learning English.


Holmewood is federated with Maytree and Triangle Nursery Schools.  As a Federated Nursery School, Holmewood is led by an Executive Head Teacher, Head of School and teachers working with other qualified early years practitioners. Holmewood offers highly inclusive education with qualified and caring staff.  It has rich and varied indoor and outdoor learning environments that allow children to play and be active in developing and acquiring new skills and knowledge; children are well motivated and are thoroughly absorbed in their learning.


They are encouraged to experiment and explore and children are very well challenged to enable them to take risks safely and develop their own problem solving skills. Outdoor learning is supported through the Natural Thinkers curriculum and an extensive allotment.


Each child is allocated a Key Person, one of our skilled early years educators or teachers. They get to know the children in their group very well and work in collaboration with their parents. Teachers and practitioners support, encourage and facilitate learning opportunities so that children are happy, confident and independent learners.


All teachers and practitioners have a thorough understanding of children’s early learning and development and the early years foundation stage and understand the importance of working together with parents and other professionals.


At Holmewood, we believe in investing in professional development and bespoke training to meet individual needs so that all teachers and practitioners feel motivated and committed to the continuing success of the school.


Visits to the school can be arranged by contacting the school office.
