“Pownall is ‘All about’ the children. They are what make this the special place that is it, they amaze me everyday.” – Form 6 Teacher
“Pownall is all about Mr Goulbourn waiting at the gate every morning to welcome you and your child. I remember Oscar’s first day, I was so impressed and relieved when he was welcomed by the Headmaster. He puts the children at ease in such a wonderful way.” – Reception Parent.
“My school is all about playing with my friends and doing art in the art room and playing the musical instruments really loudly with Mrs Hart my music teacher” – Thomas, Form 1.
“I have been at Pownall since I was 2 when I started in Nursery. I still remember Miss Earl letting me pretend to be the teacher. I remember playing in the little house in the playground in Kindergarten and being taught how to hold my pencil the right way. I have got so many amazing memories but what it has been all about, all the way through, is being your best. Not just the pupils but the teachers too, everyone works so hard to make it such a special place to be. I love Pownall.” – Milly, Form 5
“I have been teaching at Pownall for over 15 years. I have got too many wonderful words to describe it, but if there was one thing I would say it was ‘All about’, it would be ‘Family’. We are one, we are a family and it so important that children feel safe and happy so they can really thrive and reach their full academic as well as social and emotional potential. That’s exactly what Pownall is all about for me.” – Teacher
