About Us

Our School

 Welcome to Russell Hall Primary School and Nursery.  We are a long established school in the heart of the village of Queensbury.  Generation after generation have taken their first steps in learning within our walls and the school is characterised by the happy, confident and outgoing children.
We believe that every child is unique and special and our job is to begin to identify the talents and potential that lie within our children and shape and build on these to enable children to be the best that they can be.
 We would like to extend a warm welcome to visitors to our website – should you wish to visit the school, please do not hesitate to ring and make an appointment.

Our Mission

To have a support culture of openness and honesty, where great minds discuss ideas and all talents are recognised and pursued. To aspire to be exceptional at everything not just academically, with confidence at the core, inspiring the talent within. To create and develop the best in everyone; where every child is respected and valued.
At Russell Hall we are developing young people of the future who will have the skills to enable them to be ‘lifelong learners’.
We believe that collaboration, curiosity, perseverance, resourcefulness, respect and reflectiveness, along with our exciting curriculum are the keys to this aim.
