Headteacher's Welcome


Miss O'Dell, our Headteacher.

I would like to take this opportunity to offer you a very warm welcome to The Pochin School website. We hope that you find it informative and exciting. If there is anything further you would like to know about our school please do not hesitate to contact us.

I am both proud and privileged to be the Head Teacher of The Pochin School. Although we are a small school based at the heart of a rural community, our pupils come from many different backgrounds making our school family diverse.

We maintain many of the school’s traditions, valuing our Pochin School heritage, whilst providing a modern and forward thinking school experience based on meeting the needs of all our learners.

We aim to be an inclusive school, providing an exciting and stimulating curriculum which inspires our children to have an enquiring mind, to develop a love of learning and to equip them with the skills and confidence to have happy, healthy and successful futures. We strive to ensure they feel safe and happy so that they can achieve their personal potential in all areas of school life.

We are fortunate to have an extremely dedicated team of staff, Governors and volunteers; well behaved and enthusiastic pupils; supportive parents and an excellent PTA.

The Pochin School is a member of the Bradgate Education Partnership (external link) and STEP Teaching Alliance (external link).
