Robert Blair School and Children’s Centre is nestled in the heart of Islington in the vibrant area of the Caledonian Road between Kings Cross and Angel.

We have high expectations of the whole school community in terms of progress and achievement, behaviour and engagement in order to make our children ready for the next stage of their education, and to prepare them to contribute to British society. The staff and governing body model these high expectations in their daily interactions and behaviours around the school. We work hard to remove barriers to learning. Teaching and learning is a process of co-operative team work including pupils, teachers, support staff, parents, governors and others in our wider community.

Creativity has a high priority. It is a process which requires both freedom to experiment and the use of skills, knowledge and understanding. It is a vehicle to develop self-esteem, confidence and engagement both with the curriculum, and with the ever-changing world that our children are living in.
