Headteacher’s Welcome


A very warm welcome to Grendon Underwood Combined School.


I'm very proud to be Headteacher of this thriving school, which sits in the lovely village of Grendon Underwood in rural Buckinghamshire.  Please explore the website and find out more about our school, described by Ofsted in July 2018 as a "happy, caring place....where pupils look out for one another and know how to treat others with respect, regardless of background or other difference."


Finding a school for your child is a huge decision and so do come and look around, meet us and ask any questions - contact the office for an appointment.  We look forward to meeting you.

Our Vision


At Grendon, our philosophy of education ignites a curiosity in our learners and encourages them to grow their own brains.


We are aspirational and believe that our learning journey is life long – there is still so much to discover.


Our learning behaviours empower us to be resilient.


At Grendon, every child matters.


What our children say…

“I was on level 8 and I wanted to reach the next level.  I had to learn from my mistakes, dig deep, grow my brain and through hard work I have made it to the next level.”  Aimee


“I am really looking forward to my own DREAM BIG DAY on Friday, 10th November 2017, where my dream of becoming a footballer starts.” Sonny


“My dream and North Star is to become a teacher and I know that Mr Morrissey and TEAM Grendon will help me to achieve this!” Year 3 pupil


What our parents say…

“The Growth Mindset is used so well and impacts not only on my children’s learning but on our family life.  My children use the Learning Behaviours, including GRIT, to encourage each other and the rest of the family.”


Since September 2017 the Compass for Life aspect of Grendon’s philosophy has been so inspiring for my son and daughter.  They understand that: N = Their North Star   W = Their Warrior Spirit  S = The Strategist in them   E = Their Ethos”
