@ The Russell School Campus

Welcome to Strathmore at The Russell School

We are Strathmore School’s Primary provision on the Petersham side of the river, co-located with The Russell Primary School. We have the opportunity to join mainstream peers for pre-organised projects and special events, whilst still providing a bespoke learning package for our students, in a safe, calm and engaging learning environment.

The Russell campus opens to learners at 9:05am and school finishes at 3:20pm.

Here we have 4 classes for learners aged 4 and 11. The classes are organised into age appropriate groups, based around Key Stage. 

Delphini Class, Luna Class and Hercules Class are all situated inside the main campus and Leo Class is situated within The Russell School.

We ensure that all our learners have the opportunity to follow a curriculum that is individual, differentiated, engaging and meaningful. Curriculum themes run termly and opportunities for meaningful inclusion with our co-located school are always maximised when appropriate.

All classes follow the Strathmore Curriculum framework which supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children. Please see more information here:

As with all learners at Strathmore School, therapies such as Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Music Therapy are incorporated into the learners’ day based on their individual needs.

In order to identify and follow each young person’s bespoke learning pathway, we also use ‘Strathmore Approaches’ – the collective term for all our specialist strategies. Please see more information here:

As a whole school, we are always looking for opportunities to be an important part of our community and extended learning continues outside the classroom, whenever possible.

Examples include:

  • Richmond Park and playgrounds within the local community
  • Primary Music Festival at the Rose Theatre, trips to the Polka Theatre
  • Inclusive Sport Events, swimming, horse-riding at Barnhill Stables, Marble-Hill play sessions
  • Forest School at Holly Lodge and trips to Hounslow Farm
  • Using public transport to visit local shops and Ham library
  • Inclusion programme with The Russell School, our co-located Primary School

Our partnership with The Russell School

Collaborative learning is at the heart of everything we do at Strathmore, and we are delighted to be co-located with The Russell School as we have a shared culture of inclusion.  Our shared provision is adapted to meet the individual needs of our pupils and is highly beneficial for both school communities. 

Our social inclusion opportunities include eating lunch in the shared hall, joining in with play and social opportunities in the playground and a Volunteer Inclusion Partnership (VIP) programme.  The VIPs are Russell School pupils from Years 4 upwards, who come and help with social interaction and play during lunchtimes.  Interaction levels have increased between Strathmore and Russell pupils through our shared inclusion programme and has supported both sets of pupils to get to know each other better.  We join our mainstream peers for inclusive trips, special days and assemblies.  This decreased during ovid, but watch this space to see our inclusive programmes re-start.

In terms of curriculum inclusion, we offer a bespoke inclusion programme which enables our learners to join their mainstream peers for meaningful curriculum focused activities, such as PE, explorative play and creative arts, with the correct support needed to make the learning accessible.
