Welcome to the Friars Primary Foundation School website. We hope that you will find it informative. If you are considering sending your child to Friars it will help give you a flavour of what we are all about. If your child is already a pupil at Friars we hope that it will give you plenty of up to date information about what is going on in the school.
Friars is a vibrant one form entry primary school located in the Borough and Bankside ward of the London Borough of Southwark. We have a long history of high achievement and enrichment and we aim to make every child’s time with us as valuable as possible.
Friars is a happy, inclusive school where everyone is welcome; where you and your child can become part of our school community and get to enjoy all the opportunities we have to offer.
All children at Friars are challenged and supported by experienced and talented staff. Pupil well being goes hand in hand with academic success. Children at Friars enjoy coming to school. Learning is fun and there is always someone here looking out for you. Every day is a new day; a new day to learn, to explore, to laugh, to excel.
Our new state of the art building enables the children to experience the whole curriculum in an exciting and engaging way, including a dance studio, dedicated tech suite and well resourced art room. Specialist dance and music teachers offer inspiring sessions for every child.
We also use our local area and a range of whole school events to bring the learning to life. Go to our Noticeboard or read our newsletters to see some of this in action.
Friars is part of the Bridges Federation with Snowsfields, Tower Bridge and Robert Browning Primary Schools. Friars joined the Federation in January 2022. Please click on the logo to go to the Federation website.
