Welcome to Nishkam School West London, a place of great optimism, purposefulness and calm where pupils not only excel academically but also learn to become compassionate and respectful human beings.
Hopes are set very high for our outstanding-rated all-through school, as we look for our pupils to achieve the very best in preparation for higher education and a life of purpose. Firm foundations have already been laid, with primary results in Key Stage 1 placing the school’s performance in the top 5% for attainment nationally. But even more encouraging for us are the values demonstrated by our pupils in their everyday lives.
In Global road safety week pupils learnt about making sensible decisions to stay safe.
During Mental Health Awareness Week pupils gained an understanding of the importance of staying positive and knowing what to do when things don't go to plan.
Today on Vaisakhi, Sikhs remember the 5 beloved ones. In 1699 they were the first to volunteer to give up their lives for Guru Gobind Singh Ji's message - 'to always act with virtue, without vice and stand up for the meek'; Guru Ji blesses them with Amrit and bows at their feet. Happy Vaisakhi to all celebrating.

On 14th March 2022, pupils and staff from Nishkam Primary School Birmingham were delighted to be amongst a handful of schools to be invited to the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey. Prince Charles, and Prince William as well as the Prime Minister Boris Johnson were all present to bear witness in a celebration of a faith ceremony representative of the commonwealth. The annual event was held to celebrate the Commonwealth of Nations and to provide an opportunity to highlight the voluntary association of 54 countries and their commitment to promoting democracy, human rights, the rule of law and equality. Staff and pupils felt a sense of unity, and a reminder of the responsibility within this global family to do good and serve all of humanity. https://www.nishkamschooltrust.org/.../nishkam-primary... #CommonwealthDay
In Interfaith Harmony Week, people of faith recognise the beauty of diversity in all God's creation and our different faith paths. In doing so, we recognise the divine spark in every single one of us. #InterfaithHarmony
To all our pupils, teachers and families have a wonderful break and all the best to those moving on to chapters new and to all those back in the new academic year we will see our Nishkam family soon.
