I am delighted to welcome you to
Melcombe Primary School. 

We are a two-form entry school located within the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and we serve the most wonderful children and their families.  Since September 2019, we have been a part of the Thames Federation.

When you visit Melcombe Primary School, you will notice how special our school is.  Our community is diverse, harmonious and vibrant, pupils are confident, polite and happy.  Every child is valued and, regardless of their starting points in life, we have the highest expectations for each of them.

 The staff are dedicated to the children and, in order to provide the very best education, they work closely with parents and carers to develop strong partnerships.

 Our vision is simple and underpinned by a clear moral purpose; to lay firm foundations for excellence and achieve high expectations for all our pupils.

 Thank you for taking the time to visit the Melcombe Primary School website.
