Thank you for showing an interest in our school.  We are very proud to be part of Whitehouse Primary School.  In our school badge you will notice that there is a phoenix.  The reason for the inclusion of this mythical creature is linked to perhaps our darkest days.  Just over eight years ago our old school building was burned down.  We were all very sad, however, after a challenging period we got the funding for this fantastic new 3.5 million pound building.

We are both proud and grateful for our school building. Equally, however, are also very aware that the children, parents and staff are what really makes Whitehouse Primary the special place it is to us all.  We have prepared a virtual tour of our school that shows how the children are enjoying this fantastic campus and making it a place of friendship and learning.
