Welcome to Our School

 

OFSTED GoodHartpury C of E Primary School is set amidst the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside and, as such, outdoor learning plays a key role in children’s development. Our school has a strong Christian ethos; these values form the backbone to learning and are supported by strong links to the local parish churches.

The school, which was purpose-built in 2000, has three mixed-age classes and a separate class for our Reception cohort. We are passionate about teaching and learning, and about providing memorable experiences from which children develop the skills needed to move forward both socially and academically.

Our school has a kind, caring and supportive teaching staff, who work closely together as a team and ensure each child achieves their full potential. The school is well supported by a friendly parent body, who are encouraged to play a full part in everyday school life.

As a small, rural, village school, Hartpury provides a supportive and nurturing setting, in which children of all abilities and backgrounds thrive.
