Few families live in the immediate local community, instead travelling by car from other villages. This means we are a ‘choice school’, parents often choose us over their closest school. Parents choose Hambrook because of our caring ethos, our high aspirations for pupils in all areas of school life, our fantastic facilities and our strong community. Our parents at Hambrook have high aspirations for their children and their achievements at Hambrook.

One of the main strengths of Hambrook Primary is the village school ethos, which is evident even though most children do not live in the immediate local community. The safeguarding and wellbeing of our pupils - physically, spiritually and emotionally as well as academically is central to everything we do.

The distinctive aims of the school are encapsulated in our vision statement ‘Whole Child, Whole School, Whole-hearted'. The school values its members equally and is a community where everyone feels they are well cared for and encouraged to show acceptance, compassion and respect for others.

As part of our vision, we strive for the very best academic standards for our pupils no matter what their starting points. Staff are expertly skilled at teaching and promoting high levels of progress across the school.
