Crowland Primary School is a two form entry school, located at the east side of Tottenham in North London. The capacity of the school is 460 children. The school community is a rich tapestry of different languages and cultures all with one aim, to raise standards further.
The school was built in 1911 – Victorian style of building. However the building was burnt down in an accidental fire in October 2005. The children were evacuated to three different sites before moving back in June 2007. We have three playgrounds a large sized dining room as well as a recently renovated swimming pool.
There is an increasingly active parents group ‘Friends of Crowland’ at the school. The group organises numerous fund raising events to help the school to acquire resources to enhance the children learning. There are also groups of parents who come into school to hear children read, help children with activities and act as experts whenever appropriate.
The school is extremely fortunate with its communication links. The Seven Sisters tube station on the Victoria Line is only a few minutes walk away from the school as is South Tottenham station on the North London Link line which provides the overground train service to the school. Markfield Park and Gladesmore Community School are less than one minute walk away. The area is a rich resource for local geographical, historical and environmental work.
