Hotham is a confident and creative community primary school in the heart of Putney. A key word to life at our school is ‘purpose’. We believe that children need to understand what they are learning, why they need to know it and to have the opportunity to apply their learning in meaningful ways. Purpose also extends to our decision making as a staff team. Everything we choose to do must have a positive impact on our children and help our school achieve its vision.
Our school is a successful school. Wellbeing is prioritised for all members of our school community. Children are given limitless opportunities to succeed and routinely achieve above national averages. Ofsted judged Hotham as ‘good’ under the new framework in a recent inspection which took place in autumn 2019. We value languages, with all pupils learning French from day one.
