Meet our Principal

Mr John Smith

Principal’s Welcome 

I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as th Principal for the GEMS Twickenham Primary Academy, supported by the GEMS Learning Trust, and I am much looking forward to getting to know parents, as well as the pupils and staff.

From my experience of being a Leader in a London Primary School for nine years, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together. This is to ensure we are able to meet the needs of all our pupils to achieve their full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development.

 I recognise that Twickenham Primary Academy is developing a reputation of excellence through a focus on traditional but innovative education, and I am looking forward to finding out more about the school and continuing a vision that is supported by the whole school community.

I know how essential working in partnerships with parents really is in order for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience. I strongly believe achievement and enjoyment go hand in hand to ensure each child’s excellent progress. I hope you will support our high expectations in all areas, especially in behaviour and achievement.

I look forward to welcoming you all in September 2017.

Mr John Smith
