I am pleased to introduce myself as the Headteacher of Hamstel Junior School, and feel an enormous sense of pride and privilege to familiarise you with our amazing school.  I hope you find the website helpful and useful and that it provides you with the information you need. 


Hamstel Junior School is situated to the East of Central Southend, on a hill above the sandy end of the Thames Estuary.  It is very close to the Southend East railway station and on several bus routes, as well as a short walk from the beach!


Our fantastic, dedicated staff here at Hamstel Junior School are committed to providing the very best for your child.  We recognise that entering a new school for the first time is a very important step in your child's life and this site aims to assist you in this, as well as answer any questions you may have.


If you are an existing child, parent or carer at the school, we also hope you find the updated information useful, as well as the links to out latest videos, Facebook and Twitter feeds.  We are constantly trying to make communication routes as good as they possibly can be in order to ensure that you feel updated about school life.  If you have any queries that cannot be answered through this site, then do not hesitate to come into the school and speak to one of our excellent administration team. They will be more than happy to assist and find you the help you need.


It is hard to reflect in a school website the overall feel and ethos of our school so, if you are interested in your child attending our school, please do not hesitate to contact us to have a tour.  You will then be able to experience the happy atmosphere that exists and observe the learning going on in and around the school.


Yours sincerely


Mrs Christine Farrell
