The Senior Staff

Mr S Robertson - Head Teacher

I am proud to be Head Teacher of the Aylestone federation of schools (Aylestone School, Broadlands and Withington Primary Schools). Aylestone is a thriving, collaborative and caring school with high aspirations for all students. Parents who choose Aylestone have entrusted us with one of the most important and rewarding jobs in the world – that of the welfare and progress of their child. We take this responsibility very seriously. We pride ourselves on being able to offer something different in the city. We are a smaller school, but big enough to offer the breadth of choice and opportunities that other schools do. We know all our children well and have a school ethos based on mutual respect. Put simply, we are a happy, caring school, small enough to know each student well, but also big enough to offer extensive choice and opportunities.
