Welcome to Allen Edwards Primary School.


Allen Edwards Primary School is a two-form entry school based in the heart of Stockwell which takes children from Nursery to Year 6. We are an inclusive school which values the contributions made by each child and their family and are proud of the cultural and linguistic diversity of our school and its community. We have a specialist speech and language resource base which supports pupils through a variety of specialist teaching.


At Allen Edwards we offer children a creative curriculum which is fun and stimulating and encourages children to want to learn. We take full advantage of being so close to central London and offer a wide variety of trips and enrichment opportunities, as well as inviting a number of visitors to our school throughout the academic year. We have specialist music teachers in the school and offer a wide variety of music opportunities both within curriculum time and through lunchtime and after school clubs. Physical Education is high on the school’s agenda and this year we have two specialist PE coaches who offer a minimum of two hours of PE provision within the school curriculum. A variety of lunchtime and after school clubs provided by our specialist coaches takes place throughout the school week. Our Nursery and Reception children are also taught by our specialist coaches in small groups, as we believe developing these skills at an early age will encourage children to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.


We pride ourselves on the development of our pupil’s social and emotional skills by fostering caring and thoughtful attitudes, respect for others and self-confidence. The atmosphere at Allen Edwards is relaxed and welcoming and the children  show great pride in their school. The school has links with many therapeutic services and can offer pupil’s and families a variety of therapeutic services including drama and family therapy.


Allen Edwards has a strong collaborative partnership with three local primary schools, a Nursery school and a secondary academy. We work together on a number of projects to offer our children a wider variety of enrichment opportunities. One of the first major projects we worked on together was the SHINE Saturday School, set up in 2008. It has played an instrumental role in raising standards and is still going strong.


I hope you enjoy your virtual tour of the school which aims to give you an insight into what we are about here at Allen Edwards. All visits are warmly welcomed and appointments can be made through the school office.

Kind Regards,


Louise Robertson
