The Russell School Campus
Welcome to Strathmore at The Russell School
We are Strathmore School’s primary campus on the Petersham side of the river where we are co-located with The Russell Primary School.
Here we have 4 classes for learners aged 4 to 11: Delphini Class, Luna Class and Hercules Class are all situated inside the main campus and Leo Class is situated within The Russell School.
The Russell campus opens to pupils at 9.05am and school finishes at 3.20pm.
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.
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. We work closely with our colleagues in health and social care to provide integrated therapies in order to identify and follow each young person’s bespoke learning pathway. We also use ‘Strathmore Approaches’ which is our portfolio of specialist strategies that support our pupils to reach their full potential in a safe and happy environment.
Our Primary campus is always looking for opportunities to be an important part of our community and extended learning continues outside the classroom, whenever possible.

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.
