"One of the nicest schools that I have visited in a long time."
Denis Bond, author, November 2003

"It has been a pleasure to visit Waterside School!"
Ofsted Inspector, January 2004

We work towards attaining a welcoming, calm and purposeful atmosphere in which everyone feels comfortable, motivated and takes pleasure in his/her learning. Pupils are encouraged to show consideration and respect for others and their property. Pupils are also encouraged to develop self-discipline, sense of pride in themselves and their school, and recognise that their school is a part of a wider community.

We are delighted to have received an Achievement Award from the Government in 2003.


We are kind and gentle in all we say and do
We help one another
We are honest
We try our best at all times
We are proud of our school and everything in it
We listen carefully, without interrupting
