Welcome to our school website.
Here at Hampsthwaite, we put children's enjoyment and achievement at the centre of everything we do. We work hard to provide a creative and engaging school curriculum, and I hope you will see from our website that there is always plenty going on, and much to celebrate!
The values and aims of our school are built firmly on Christian beliefs and principles, embodied not only in our heritage as a Church School but also in our everyday interactions and activities. It is through the support we give to each other that we build up respect, friendship and effective teamwork.
The excellent work of our school, leadership, staff and children was recognised recently in our Ofsted and SIAMS Inspections, for both of which we were graded Outstanding in January 2014.
I feel very proud to be able to lead and serve this successful school community. I hope you find the information on our website useful and interesting. Please do get in touch if you would like to know more about our school.
Our school is continually alive and responsive to the changing needs of the pupils and community. The Christian ethos recognises and preserves the school’s religious character, is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all, regardless of background, race, gender, religion or disability, in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.
Hampsthwaite is a welcoming community where individual qualities are nurtured in a safe and caring environment. Through cooperation and a progressive, enthusiastic and adventurous approach to education, we ensure that children are equipped with the life and academic skills necessary for living within a fast changing, multi-cultural society.
Our School is a happy family, with a welcome extended to all.
