Welcome from the Headteacher – Ali Francombe

Welcome to The Banda. Whilst our website may give you a taste of all that is on offer, I would urge you to come and visit the School, as it is only then that you will gain a true insight into the warmth, confidence and friendliness that radiates from within every area of our school.

Whilst a Head will always speak highly of their school, I frequently reflect on what makes us special. I am always amazed by the commitment and loyalty of our community, from past Alumni to present day pupils, staff and parents, all of whom are actively involved and contribute to a very vibrant community spirit. For it is this partnership between pupils, parents and staff that lays the foundation upon which our success is built.

From our high academic standards and continued sporting excellence to our extensive array of Extras and co-curricular programmes, our dedicated and progressive teaching team remains dedicated to drawing the very best from all of the boys and girls in their care. Children at The Banda are happy and confident and they go on to achieve great things.

A warm welcome awaits you and whilst I am sure you will enjoy perusing our website, please do come and visit us. We will be happy to welcome you to The Banda School.
