We are a small school where children can develop their intellectual and social skills, become confident individuals and critical thinkers.

Find out about our approach

a playful and happy environment

The word ‘Girotondo’ comes from the Italian language and translates into ‘ring a ring o’ roses’, the nursery rhyme, which best describes how we picture our children, learning in a playful and happy environment.

an inclusive community

We are part of the community here in Chiswick and involve parents in our projects; we are a research led school which focuses on educators’ personal growth and exchange of experiences with a wider national and international learning community.
