Hello and welcome to South End Junior School in Rushden Northants

The learning journey ignites here…

We warmly welcome you to our school and hope our website gives you an insight into life at South End Junior.

As Headteacher of South End Junior, I am very proud of our school and the achievements of our children and staff.

We strive to inspire children and encourage them to see that everyone is on a learning journey. We have built a new curriculum that engages, interests and excites our learners, whilst giving every child the skills and understanding that will underpin their future choices in learning and in life. It is these children, within this environment, that cause our classrooms to be full of creative ideas and stimulating energies while ensuring our high expectations for their achievements are met.

South End Junior School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in our school.
