Pride, Passion, Success


Tony Head Headteacher

My name is Tony Head and I have been the Headteacher of Portswood Primary School since September 2016.

However, I had the pleasure of working at this school a decade ago and was delighted that I had the opportunity to return as Headteacher.

The support and guidance that comes from working across the MAT is invaluable and I love the feeling of ‘family’ across the partnership. Both the school and I personally have benefited immensely from the depth and breadth of knowledge and support that is available. It has given me the confidence to make informed decisions that I feel are right for the school; ones that have allowed us to continue to strive for excellence for all of our children.

Amanda Parry Executive Headteacher

Portswood is an outstanding school where children are at the centre of everything that we do.  We believe that all members of the school community should aim high and dream big.  We have high aspirations for all.

Our aim is that every child fulfils their potential regardless of aptitude or barriers to learning.  We are committed to being an outstanding, self-improving school and to support the professional development of all within the school community.

It is my absolute pleasure to work with the Principal, Mr Tony Head, and all the staff and governors to provide excellent educational opportunities for the children at Portswood Primary School.
