About The Belham Primary School

The Belham Primary School is a state-funded two-form entry academy in Peckham, south London. The school opened in September 2015, in a refurbished Victorian school building on the corner of Bellenden and Maxted Roads.

The Belham is now part of The Charter Schools Educational Trust, a family of four primary schools and two secondary schools serving communities across the London Borough of Southwark.

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.
