About Us

Enjoy, Endeavour, Achieve, Together

Queenswell Junior School is a community school in Whetstone, North London sharing its extensive site with an Infant & Nursery School. I was appointed as Headteacher in January 2007.

Over a number of years, the school has had a fluctuating role in terms of numbers and its profile. The school used to be next to army barracks with up to 25% of children coming from service families; however, the barracks closed several years ago and the school has had to adapt to a changing demographic and numbers. The number of children with free school meals and English As An Additional Language has increased, which has provided us with challenges although the substantial Pupil Premium money has helped to ensure the best outcomes for these pupils. EAL children achieve as well as their peers and Pupil Premium children are mostly achieving better; there is no ‘gap’ between our learners.
