Welcome to our school's website

We hope that you will find the website informative and that it will provide you with a flavour of Sherwood Park Primary School, our ethos and our values. We are continually updating and developing the website to make it more interactive and have recently opened a school Facebook page and Twitter account to share the work and activities that the children complete in school. Follow us @SherwoodPBexley

Visits to see 'our school in action' are warmly welcomed. Tours of the school will take place on Tuesday mornings from September 2021. Please ring the school office to book a place on a tour and meet our new Headteacher. In the meantime, please watch our virtual tour on the admissions page and if you have further questions please ring the main office to speak to a member of the school's senior leadership team.

Please don't forget that Friday is the last day of term and the school will be closing at 1:30pm
