Our School

Welcome to Garras School

Garras Primary School is known locally as a very caring and happy small school.  We aim to inform you about the general organisation of the school, which in turn we hope will confirm that you and your children will feel at home here.  We feel that your child’s success at school comes from a partnership between home and school, and we look forward to your help and support.

This can only be an introduction to the school; the best way to find out more about us is to come and have a look round.  Please ring – we look forward to meeting you.


Dear Parents and Visitors

My name is Mrs Linda May, and I am thrilled to be the Executive Headteacher of this school.  I am responsible for 5 closely located schools in the Helston area; all with a unique identity and yet shared desire to offer our children the best possible start to their educational journey.

I am ably supported by an experienced Senior Teacher who is our Head of School, and a dedicated and talented staff that have the same high expectations as you do for your child.  We believe in a close working relationship between teachers and parents is essential to success and we look forward to welcoming you to our many special events.

I firmly believe that every child deserves to have a happy and fulfilling primary education.  I also know that children learn best through an interesting and engaging curriculum.  Together, we will strive to make learning enjoyable, varied and challenging so that all children achieve well and are motivated to do their very best.

I look forward to our paths crossing and sharing some of the special moments in the life of our school.

With all good wishes,

Mrs L May
