It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Headteacher of Waterhouses CE Primary Academy and Nursery.
We are a small, friendly, Church of England school set in an enviable location in the Staffordshire Moorlands on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Children join our school in Nursery at 3 years of age and move on to their next journey at the end of Year 6 at the age of 11 years. The majority of our pupils leave to move onto QEGS in Ashbourne.
I feel extremely honoured and privileged to have been chosen to lead and continue the development of this fantastic school .Every time I have visited since I was appointed, I have been made to feel very welcome and I love the caring, nurturing ethos of the school.
As a parent my goal has always been to ensure my children are happy in life and achieve their potential. This is the philosophy I bring to my role as Headteacher. My goal is to ensure all children who attend Waterhouses CE Primary Academy and Nursery are happy and provided with all the necessary opportunities to be the best they can be both socially and academically.
I am looking forward to working with the school community to continue on the school’s journey to provide the best educational start in the ever-changing world, where they can shine in whatever they move onto in the future.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school office to come and look around and see first hand our fabulous children, dedicated staff and superb facilities and surroundings.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Mrs Rachel Linton
