Welcome to the Skyswood Primary and Nursery School website.

We are a single form entry school located in the pleasant residential area of Marshalswick on the North-East side of St Albans. Our school has been a part of the local community since opening in 1960. We are also home to Skyswood Nursery, a 30 place mornings only nursery, that offers a warm and encouraging step into education for pre-school children.

Skyswood Primary and Nursery School is committed to providing a high quality education for all of our pupils. Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and challenging environment where children recognise and achieve their full potential, developing a love for learning in an ever-changing world. We aim to achieve our vision through:

  • Valuing diversity
  • A safe and secure environment
  • A challenging and exciting curriculum, delivered through the highest quality of teaching
  • Sharing everybody’s achievements and celebrating their successes
  • Involving the whole school community in respecting and caring for each other and the world around us

We are proud of the academic and extracurricular achievements of our school, which are testament to the quality and commitment of our staff, the support of the wider community and the efforts and focus of the Skyswood pupils.
