Simon de Senlis Primary School

About Us

Simon de Senlis is a happy and successful primary school in East Hunsbury, Northampton, educating 440 pupils, 20 of whom learn within our specialist unit.  At Simon de Senlis, we are passionate about learning.  Through our distinct approach to learning, driven by inspiration, high expectations and innovation, we are building a community of responsible, determined, aspirational, healthy and happy learners who make a positive 'dent in the universe'.

We foster an enthusiastic, creative community of learners within a safe environment where all are valued, and differing needs are acknowledged and met.  We believe that education should take place with equal opportunities for all and that all children will develop independence, along with a sense of responsibility for themselves, respect for others and their environment.

At Simon de Senlis, we believe all children should receive great teaching and be able to leave our school with the academic foundations for success in the future.  Alongside this, we offer our children a wide range of learning opportunities through Sport, The Arts, Drama and Technology which help to develop their creativity, confidence and well-being.

Staff work hard at our school to ensure that children are challenged and supported to achieve highly, and we are fortunate to benefit from a very supportive parent community.  Our school strives to be at the centre of the local community with positive and effective links to the wider and global communities.  In partnership with families and the community, we ensure that children develop the knowledge, critical thinking skills and character necessary to succeed today and in the future.  Children's behaviour is outstanding, and everyone enjoys learning at Simon de Senlis!

Simon de Senlis is rich and diverse, and we are proud of the children's achievements across the curriculum, which have been recognised by the following awards:

  • Flagship School for Inclusion
  • Music Mark
  • School Games Gold Mark
  • Arts Council Mark
