About Hughenden Primary School

The school is located in its own grounds in a pleasant residential area to the north of High Wycombe in the Hughenden Valley – part of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The school caters for Reception, Key Stage 1 and 2. There is also a Pre-School

Hughenden Primary School started life as an infant school in 1973 in response to the need from a rapidly developing village community. It has always provided a small school ethos
and an ideal start for our children into education. The change to primary school took place
in 2006 in line with national government and local county council guidance on primary
education. This meant a reduction in admissions from 30 to 15 and teaching organised in
mixed age classes.

In 2015 the school decided to expand again with 30 pupils being admitted each year and
becoming a single form entry school. A building project resulted in adding three additional
classrooms, a small conference room, and extended the staff room.
