I have just seen the posting from my elder brother John. I well remember Miss Hattersley and how interested she was in us even years after we had left. I was 8 when we were evacuated first to Chesham then to Port Isaac where about 20 pupils from Lionel Road were billeted in the Castle Rock Hotel. We thought it was a great adventure but I don't think our parents did.
I am delighted to know how well regarded the school is and wish you continued success in the future.
I attended Lionel Road School from 1938 to 1940 and was evacuated with the school to Chesham, Bucks and then to Port Isaac in Cornwall, leaving to go to a grammar school there. I remember the school fondly. I used to walk across Gunnersbury Park from my home on the other side. My teacher was Mr. Whitty.and the headmistress, Miss Hattersley
Interested to see your lively website and to see that all is well with the school

To Mrs Moran and staff,
Congratulations to you all for such a very good job in the 3Rs in recent years and the proof is in the pudding as they say. What a fantastic showing in the just released results! I am so pleased that my daughter is at such a high achieving academic school as well as one where she is nurtured and encouraged to grow.
Keep the good work up and enjoy your Christmas break .

What a great website. It is clearly a very different school from when I attended from 1947 to 1951.
Well done everyone

Well its Alfie's very last day at Lionel today and I would like to say a massive thank you to Mrs Moran and her wonderful teaching staff for 8 wonderful years at a wonderful school, Alfie has loved every minute (nearly lol) and will miss you all very much.
My daughter attended Reception Class at Lionel up until Easter and I can't thank enough the hard work done at the school. Now that she's attending another school, I can see the big gap between them. Lionel is well ahead in the program and my daughter benefited greatly, she had and amazing teacher who always kept her motivated.
I can't stop feeling that in the new school she is missing out on learning and her skills are being put to sleep. Her reading was fantastic, and now she's given texts she already had 6 months ago in Lionel!!!!
So if any parent is thinking about applying to Lionel School, please do it, your children will have an enormous opportunity to have a great start in their educational journey.

Chessington trip photos look great, the children (and staff) look like they all had a great time. What a fantastic treat after a hard week of SAT's. Sarah Boyadji (Parent)
As secondary school teachers visiting from Isleworth and Syon School, it was fantastic to see such a cheerful and colourful school. The displays are lovely, the children polite and enthusiastic and the staff were very welcoming to us throughout our visit. Many thanks to Lionel Primary for having us for the day!

What fantastic messages there are on the site! makes me very proud
to be associated with the school, the staff and all the pupils!
this is a great site!
I love it when the children recognise me in the community, they are so cheerful both inside the school and outside of it
Reverend Derath Durkin. Deputy Chair of Governors
I went round the whole school recently, after being elected Chair of Governors, and two things really struck me: what a bright and cheerful school we have and how well-behaved the children are. They were proud to show me their work and both they and their teachers talked confidently about what they were doing. I'm not surprised that so many families are trying to get their children into Lionel! G. Dutton Chair of Governors
Thank you allowing me to visit Lionel Primary for two days as part of my teacher training. It was a fantastic experience! I was able to observe Reception and Years 1, 2, 5 (Speech and Language) and 6. The children were perfectly behaved as well as very sweet and polite. There was no calling out or fidgeting on the carpets. What happens to them at secondary school?? I was particularly impressed by Year 6. Their class books were absolutely immaculate and regularly marked with formative feedback. They also had separate "Technical English" books as punctuation and grammar have been a particular focus. So many of the students were applying the knowledge they had acquired through this rigorous course to their general writing (i.e. the use of embedded clauses etc.) Very technical stuff. Also, in their assessment folders, students had a range of writing assessments reflecting their ability in a wide variety of genres i.e. creative-writing (fiction), writing to inform, writing to persuade etc. All in all, a brilliant day. And, as a bonus, I even learnt about a new dinosaur I'd never heard of! Thank you, Year 1. Sian Sawbridge (Trainee Teacher - Isleworth & Syon)
