    Well Schools S2, E2 - Jeremy Hannay, Three Bridges Primary School in West London

    On this week’s episode, we learn why how a Well Led school can create a place where staff and Headteacher wellbeing is actively supported and championed ensuring the whole school is connected with the wider school community.
    Our special guest this week is Dr Jeremy Hannay, Headteacher at Three Bridges Primary in West London. Three Bridges know that primary education only takes eight years but lasts a lifetime. The school has a world-class curriculum and deep and meaningful development priorities. 
    Students will learn both inside and outside the classrooms. They will read, write, and solve problems after kayaking down the canal and study the Southall Uprising after making a fire in the Forest School. They will learn together. They will grow together. They will struggle and succeed together.
