Welcome to the Website of Atwood Primary Academy

Nothing is Impossible

The school is now closed for half term. Pupils return to school on Monday 3 November.

Our Year 6 are involved in a very special community music project with the London Mozart Players.  This project has been focused around the centenary of the First World War. Recently the children sang WW1 songs at a local residential home, which everybody really enjoyed.  The children will be singing as part of a newly commissioned work, For an Unknown Solider' by modern composer, Jonathan Dove.  This concert is being held at the Fairfield Halls on Friday 14th November at 7.30pm.  
(Check us out under London Premier!!!)
