Headteacher's Welcome


On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Three Lane Ends Academy. We hope you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of our school, the work of our pupils and the quality education we strive to deliver.

Being the Headteacher of Three Lane Ends Academy gives me great pleasure. Having been a teacher here for 16 years and the Assistant Headteacher for 10 years, I am fully committed to the community of Three Lane Ends Academy and strive to ensure that the school serves our local children and their families well.

While it is my priority that the education your child receives here with us will enable them to achieve their academic potential and progress confidently into the next phase of their education, it is also part of my vision that all our children are filled with positive experiences, that they are aware of the endless possibilities that await them and that they are nurtured in order to develop within them, a confidence to embrace whatever comes their way. Underpinning the above, is my relentless commitment to ensuring that the children of Three Lane Ends Academy possess the values that enable them to live well in society and prepares them to deal effectively with the challenges that the modern world presents.

All of our staff share this vision and recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs. They work tirelessly to provide a varied and engaging curriculum and a positive school experience.

If you would like to know more about our school, you are very welcome to come and visit.

Parent Questionnaires - The Parent Questionnaires given out at Parents' Evening in November were completed by 156 parents. Thank You! They were overwhelmingly positive with only a handful of concerns raised.

Home School Projects - A very big thank you for your support with the Home School Projects. We have been extremely impressed with the variety and standard of the projects and the level of effort and creativity demonstrated. 

Junior Playground - As you may be aware, the surface on the junior playground is suffering from wear and tear and as a result we would like to have it resurfaced. Due to the size of the playground, the costs involved will be substantial– tens of thousands of pounds. We are currently seeking quotes. As far as we are aware, there are no grants available to support us with this. We intend to write to local businesses and companies who are currently working in the local area in order to seek financial help. If you are able to secure any help on our behalf, please let us know. We will also need to organise a variety of fund raising events each year to help towards the cost. If you have any ideas for this, please let us know.
