Situated in the tranquil Chiltern Hills area, our facilities and surrounding environment provide our students with a great place to learn, to enjoy a little time off during breaks, and to engage in the various extracurricular activities that we offer at Atholl Heights Primary School.
Learn By Doing
Education is the first and foremost the priority of Atholl Heights Primary, and we pride ourselves on ensuring that learners receive great learning materials. The teachers’ prepared material is combined with world-renowned programs such as Letterland and Oxford Reading Tree.
We always look for opportunities to improve our teaching and learning experience. Our staff enthusiastically participate in ongoing professional development, keeping up to date with techniques and new resources.
Each of our classrooms is equipped with a digital projector and modern sound equipment to facilitate learning from more than just physical and written content, but audio and visual as well.
Our School’s Values & Vision
The primary ‘heart-throb’ of the school is providing a secure and positive environment in which our learners can be encouraged and challenged to achieve and develop both academically and personally. We believe that having a happy and motivated teaching staff, learner body, and an involved community sets a foundation for excellence.
From Our Principal:
“Atholl Heights is a community school, and we all take pride in our facilities and the engaging learning environment. My predecessor, Mrs. Diana Warwick, always emphasized the importance of striving towards being ‘Simply the Best’. This remains a core element in our school’s mission, and it is the energy behind everything that we as a team set out to do.”
– Mr Wing
