Welcome from our new headteacher

Mr. Alex Bell

I am very proud to have been selected to lead Colston’s Primary School and I am very excited about being part of an outstanding future for the whole school community.

It’s a great time to be joining Colston’s as the stunning new Elmgove site enjoys its first year and everyone gets used to being on two sites. It is my intention to ensure that we all get the best out of all the facilities we share at Colston’s, whether new or established and that we extend the positive vibrant family atmosphere the school is known for.

I believe that every young person deserves the best possible start in life through being part of a world class education. I also believe that all learning should be exciting, engaging and enjoyable. Over the coming days, weeks, months and years I will do my best to make this happen.

The most effective learning happens when school and home work in partnership, and on this basis I look forward to working the community, getting to know everyone and moving towards an outstanding future for us all.
