Message from Headteacher, Nicholas Miller

Welcome to the Ferry Lane Primary School website.
The information on this website can only provide a glimpse into our school, so if you require any further information please contact us.

Ferry Lane Primary School sits at the heart of its community, situated on a residential estate near to Tottenham Hale Station in Haringey, London. We are very proud of our school. Ferry Lane is a special place to be and we are a caring and supportive school.

We have a great team of teachers, teaching assistants and support staff that treat children with fairness and respect because at Ferry Lane ‘Every Child Matters’. The staff at Ferry Lane Primary School promote hard work and challenge; a driven, supportive body of people who look for the very best in each other.

We believe in developing all children’s love of learning in a safe and stimulating environment. We promote E.P.I.C. teaching and learning striving to ensure that our children’s learning is exciting, pacey, involving and challenging.


In addition to our termly parents’ evenings and reports we encourage parents to get involved in the many events (which are always good fun) that we arrange during the year. We work closely with our parents to ensure the best possible care for their children.


At Ferry Lane we are understanding, respectful and with a positive attitude towards life we aspire to achieve here and beyond. We strive to develop world class citizens for the future and we have a collective belief that will ensure that we do: If we consider any aspect of our provision to be of a standard that would not be good enough for our own children, then it would certainly not be good enough for the young people at Ferry Lane Primary School. With this mantra in mind we work tirelessly every day to develop our school into the very best it can be.

Our learning community consists of local, national and global links and each branch of Ferry Lane takes pride in excellence. Here, as the children grow in confidence, so does their desire to question and discuss, to reflect and apply their learning. Our aim is to ensure every child in our school reaches their full potential and has the skills to cope with secondary education, so that they can go on to fulfil their dreams.
