About Us

Headteacher’s Welcome

Your child is an individual –– they deserve a unique, personalised education.

A warm welcome to Russell Street School.  We are a dedicated, hard-working, friendly team who work very closely together to support children's growth and learning.

We are an infant school situated in the heart of Stony Stratford.  Choosing an infant school education ensures that you have a whole school team supporting your child who are dedicated to and specialise in the education of 3 to 7 years olds.  We have extremely strong links with our local junior school, ensuring that there is a seamless transition into Key Stage Two.

Russell Street School was built in 1844 and moved into the present buildings in 1907.  We are a Local Authority school that caters the Early Years Foundation Stage (3-5 years old), which includes a nursery and reception classes and Key Stage 1 (5-7 year olds).  There are three classes in each year group with a maximum of 288 places, which includes 78 part-time nursery places.

We have high expectations, inclusive approaches, an exciting bespoke curriculum and excellent teaching. We aim to create a happy, caring environment in which children develop self-confidence and independence; are encouraged to be considerate and show respect for others. Russell Street children are encouraged to work hard; have a positive attitude to learning and become confident in their own ability.

We are committed to working in partnership with our parents, the local and global community to develop our pupils’ values for life alongside a broad range of skills that will prepare them for lifelong learning.
