On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Mount Pleasant Lane Primary School. 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 of education we strive to deliver.
Mount Pleasant Lane is a 1 ½ form entry primary, set in spacious grounds in Bricket Wood near St Albans. We are part of the Spiral Partnership Trust, a multi-academy trust which specialises in developing excellent primary schools. We collaborate with the other schools in the Trust to ensure that teaching and learning is of the highest standard possible.
MPL is a happy, safe and enjoyable place for your child, where he or she will be challenged and motivated to learn. We want children to be excited about learning and we want to work closely with you to make sure that happens. It is my belief that every child should have the opportunity to be the best they can be – to enjoy their schooling and achieve as well as they can. Learning is for life and we aim to give the children in our care the best skills possible to equip them for life beyond primary school.
There is much to celebrate at MPL and I am excited to lead the school into its next stage of development, building upon the success that the school already has and ensuring that everyone has a happy, fulfilling and successful time here. My ambition is to create a school community where everyone feels valued, has the opportunity to explore, develop their strengths and participate in new experiences.
If you haven’t visited our school yet, please do so as we are extremely proud of the children here and the interesting and creative work that they do. We are also proud of the excellent, dedicated team of staff who work here. One of us would be delighted to show you round the school and let the children speak for themselves!
