Welcome to Melcombe!

Melcombe Primary School is at the heart of our community here in Hammersmith. I am proud to say that OFSTED found that our pupils like their school very much. They found that children here have many opportunities to take on roles that make our school a force for good in our community. 

Our onsite and federated nurseries, Melcombe, Bayonne and James Lee, ensure that children are given the very best start in their education, which we aim to build on throughout their time with us. We have high expectations for all our pupils.
