We are charged with preparing our students for life, enabling them to approach the challenges beyond primary school with confidence, enthusiasm and respect.

An extract from our latest Ofsted report of July 2016: “The school’s Christian ethos and core values of compassion, forgiveness, friendship and thankfulness are evident in the positive relationships between pupils and staff. Pupils feel well cared for and supported by staff. Pupils are proud of their school and their work. They enjoy coming to school and are keen to learn.”

We are a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School. The school currently has 87 pupils taught in year groups R; 1 and 2; 3 and 4; 5 and 6. The PAN is currently 15.

Applications to the school come from a wide area due to the low population of Hunton itself and the strong Christian ethos and values of the school which create a strong community and an unrivalled environment for learning.
