Hitherfield Primary School and Children's Centre

Welcome to our school...

Whether it is the friendly welcome you receive when you walk into our school or seeing the many families using our grounds after school to play and meet others, as soon as you walk through the gates you will feel part of our community.  Welcome to Hitherfield Primary School and Children’s Centre.
Over the last couple of years the pandemic has been a challenge for everyone, but Hitherfield has managed to rise to these challenges, supporting children and families in so many ways, including on-site learning, virtual learning, emotional support and food programmes. The Hitherfield community has repeatedly pulled together to support each other - thank you.

Our vision is a school community where everyone feels valued, has the opportunity to explore, develop their strengths and participate in new experiences. Our aim is an inspirational school creating good people in an atmosphere that promotes confidence, high academic achievement, physical health and emotional well-being. We support this aim with our core values (Unity, Excellence, Respect, Trust, Explore and Determination) and learning dispositions (Collaboration, Curiosity, Creativity, Resilience, Reflection and Risk-taking). 

Our curriculum has always celebrated our rich diversity and being a London school, but we know that an exciting, enaging curriculum is one that continues to evolve. We are currently reviewing our whole curriculum, in light of the Black Lives Matter movement, to ensure we include everyone in all areas of the curriculum. 

We pride ourselves on the partnership between the school, the child and their family. Hitherfield has served the local area since the 19th Century and continues to do so with our modern, well-resourced school buildings in stunning grounds; including three playgrounds, a field, trim trail, nature area, edible playground and a ball court. 

It has been my honour to have been the Head Teacher at Hitherfield since 2006 and to serve the community I know so well.
If you haven’t visited before, please contact the main school office to make an appointment.
