Constable Way - Shoeburyness



Friars began life as a junior school back in 1971 and not long afterwards the infant and nursery school came into being. The two schools remained separate until after the millennium. On September 1 2004, the infants and the juniors amalgamated to become the school we know today.


Whilst we are celebrating our 50th birthday this academic year, our school is fully modernised for the times we live. At Friars we are very rich in terms of our environment and we have wonderful expansive grounds that include playgrounds for Nursery, Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, a very large field and a wonderful environmental garden. Inside the environmental garden sits our outdoor classroom which can accommodate a full class of children. Outdoor learning is an important aspect of the Friars curriculum and all of the children enjoy a week of lessons outside each term. Inside our building we are very fortunate in that we have good space and we are well resourced. Our building has 18 classrooms, two large halls, two libraries, a computing suite and many other learning and work spaces.


As a primary school with a nursery, we welcome children from the age of 3 all the way up to age of 11. We aim high in everything we do and we love the impact we have on our young people. We have unwavering expectations for everyone: academically, socially and emotionally and we are proud to hold a number of accreditations including Enhanced Healthy Schools and Emotional Health and Wellbeing Status.
