Background Information

Lionel Primary School was opened in 1931. We are part of a diverse and vibrant local community. Lionel Primary has 3 forms of entry, throughout the school. Classes are mixed ability and have a maximum of 30 pupils.


We run a morning and afternoon Nursery, Rainbow Class, with 30 places available in each session.  It is situated in a separate block next to our pre-school facilities: Little Lions Playgroup. There is also a covered outside play area and an enclosed garden.


The school has extended day care schemes. There is a daily Breakfast Club, an extensive extra-curricular clubs programme and an Aftercare facility (Kamla’s Club) Further details and costs are available from the School Office. 


The Speech and Language Centre was established at Lionel in 1983.  We cater for 25 pupils aged from 4 to 11 years.  Places are allocated by Hounslow LA SEND panel and all children have an Educational Health Care Plan.  Their general abilities fall within the average range although they require specialist teaching. They are taught in small, usually mixed age classes and may join mainstream peers for some lessons.


Lionel has excellent facilities and resources. We have two large halls, resource areas and group work rooms that are used for different activities e.g. drama, dance, assemblies and intervention groups.  We enjoy the use of 2 school mini buses which are used to take children on school trips and to sporting fixtures etc.  The school also benefits from spacious, attractive grounds.  We have a large playground, a sports field and a multi universal games arena (MUGA).


We have an active and supportive PTA , The Friends of Lionel, who organise events throughout the year to raise money to support school projects.
