“I believe that to teach children efficaciously, we must touch their hearts long before we begin to teach their minds.”


Pleasure to welcome you to Pumpkin foundation school, a unit of Guru Nanak Modern School. It is a unique and vibrant school, supported by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers and supportive staff. The Pumpkin is proud to offer our young ones a unique opportunity to immerse in a multicultural educational context and culture.


Learning at pumpkin is based on the fundamental principles of life that is teaching the young ones to be courageous, confident, disciplined, loyal and responsible.


We believe the journey through school is a special one, where the children are at the heart of the decisions we make. We ensure they are happy and inspired, and thus strive towards independent learning and academic success.


Our learning environment is colourful and energetic and each lesson boosts creativity and stimulates learning experiences. Our Curriculum creates a curiosity for learning and creativity. This helps to develop high aspirations, a lifetime of memories and provides each child with relevant opportunities for both now and in the future.


The activities play an important role in delivering the required understanding, achievement and motivation. It enhances the skill multiple times of a particular student. The Co- Curricular activities in the pumpkin enables the students to establish their own identity at an initial stage and develop the confidence at extreme level with accommodated understanding.

Welcome Parents,

The Pumpkin offers children aged 2 years to 7 years old opportunities to achieve academic, cultural, artistic, sporting and community endeavors. We provide an inclusive, caring environment which fosters collaborative learning and positive relationships.

We strive to stimulate a child’s interests and unlock the learning potential in every student by providing an environment that allows children to thrive as individuals while developing community awareness and values.

The staff at The Pumpkin tries hard to cultivates positive values and emotions in our school. We support and encourage children in their quest to develop respectful and fulfilling relationships with their peers, school staff and members of the community. Teachers guide students in their search for meaning and enjoyment in the disciplines we introduce to them to by nurturing their desire to learn. Finally, showing our students love is an education in itself. We treat the students and staff in our school as part of our family.

We want to inspire learning for its own sake by sharing our joy of learning and leading by example in everything we do. Through this we hope to embed important future, focused learning skills in the children : problem solving, evaluating, working in teams, communicating, creating and innovating. We teach using a cross-circular, subject themed Montessori inspired approach with emphasis on balancing personal growth, academic success, creative expression and sport.

The Pumpkin values the partnership between children’s families and the school in raising children to reach their highest potential. We encourage open communication with parents, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me or school staff with enquiries and questions.

Thank you for visiting The Pumpkin School.

Warm regards,
Preeti Grover
