  • "My son has come along brilliantly in his first year at school.  We couldn't be happier and can't believe how much he has learnt.  We are so thankful to the teachers for their hard work and support in making him shine!"

A message from our school

Edward Bryant School is a friendly, caring school committed to offering every child a secure, stimulating and happy environment where your child can do their best. 
We all enjoy being the best we can be.

My name is Emma Purkis and I am the Acting Headteacher for the school for the next two terms, whilst Mr Waddington is on secondment as a Consultant Headteacher. I have been lucky enough to have worked at Edward Bryant School for the last 24 years and have fulfilled a wide number of roles. These have involved me teaching all year groups, working as the SENCO as well as both an Assistant Headteacher and then as Deputy Headteacher.

As a school we are in a very strong position as we have a committed, secure staff team and as a result our children enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum delivered in an engaging and exciting manner. I feel very privileged and excited to have been given the opportunity to lead the school for the next two terms and I hope that you enjoy exploring our website and finding out more about what our school has to offer.

Mrs Purkis
Acting Head of School
