My name is Mr. Harrold and I am the 'new-ish' Headteacher here at Huntingtree. I started here in September 2016. I've been a teacher since 2003 where I started teaching at a school called Brickhouse Primary in Rowley. In my second year of teaching, I was made Acting Deputy Head and I've held leadership positions in schools ever since. I was seconded from Brickhouse to Devonshire Junior School and then Temple Meadow Primary School to support the leadership teams at those respective schools. My next permanent school was Wollescote Primary School near Lye. I moved there in 2009 and had 7 wonderful years working as Deputy Headteacher and Acting Headteacher (twice) to help move the school from Special Measures to become a good school when I left in July 2016.


Huntingtree is a school that is getting better every day and it really does have the potential to be a really amazing school. The children are fantastic, the staff are dedicated and we are fortunate to be supported by an excellent community of parents and helpers who care passionately about the school.


The school was rated as Requires Improvement for the second consecutive time by Ofsted in June 2016 and since then, the staff here have been working extremely hard to improve the learning journey each child has at Huntingtree.


My aim is to work with the wonderful staff here to build a school:


  • that children look forward to attending
  • where lessons are fun and exciting
  • where children are known as individuals
  • where everyone is safe and cared for
  • where it is ok to make mistakes as we know that this is when learning happens


I hope you enjoy our website and that it gives you a flavour of what our school is about.



Mr. Harrold
