About Us

Simon Beswick with pupils

Executive Headteacher’s Welcome

We are a school that encourages and celebrates a love of learning where each pupil is known and cared about as an individual. We have created not only a school but a community of pupils, parents and teachers brought together by a shared dedication to doing whatever it takes to achieve success.

Our teachers are high performing professionals who go above and beyond expectations to make a difference to pupils’ lives. They are enthusiastic about understanding how children learn and are dedicated to the role of ensuring our pupils are happy and successful.

Lime Tree has the highest academic aspirations and, at the same time, maintains a caring, family orientated culture. The school is a calm, orderly environment that embraces all learners.

At Lime Tree you will discover: high expectations for each and every member of our school community; dedication to ensure all our pupils succeed; challenge to develop independent thought; creativity to engender flexibility and learner discipline, to enable resilience and a ‘can-do’ attitude to life.

Lime Tree is a designated National Teaching School, part of the everyonelearning@ Teaching School Alliance. Our work in this area ensures that our own practice remains outstanding and continually challenges our thinking. We welcome teachers and academics nationally and internationally, who come to learn and share great practice.

Headteacher’s Welcome

I would like to warmly welcome you to our school family. I feel truly privileged to lead such an amazing and inspirational school.

We are a school dedicated to learning and enjoyment. Our teachers enjoy delivering fun and challenging lessons. We celebrate the achievements of all our children. We have high expectations and strive to be the best we can be. All of our staff are committed to the care and nurture of all our community.

We like to do things a little differently and love being outdoors enjoying the beautiful surroundings we have developed together.

Our website is only a glimpse of what we feel makes Lime Tree Primary Academy distinctive. The best way for you to appreciate what we can offer your child is to experience our school first hand.

I do hope you will visit us to meet our children and staff and to experience life at our unique school.
