We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This web site aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. We hope that you enjoy your visit to our web site, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct (details on the contact page) with any queries you may have.
Hazlemere Church of England Combined School was founded in 1847, shortly after the church, by Misses Hannah and Elizabeth Carter who were very concerned about the ungodliness of Hazlemere. It was their determined wish to fund a school “to give children some knowledge of right and wrong”! This was when Hazlemere was no more than a hamlet on a high wind-swept heath. The school has been added to and developed since then, and continues to do so to maintain a quality learning environment for the children.
The school enjoys Voluntary Aided Status as a Church of England school and maintains strong links with the lively, family orientated parish church at Holy Trinity. The school has an Early Years Foundation Stage Unit and provides primary education throughout Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 which means we provide education for children from three to eleven years of age. The school is organised in classes by age, normally with a single year age range in each. Classes usually have between 30 - 33 children. Each class has a named class teacher though a range of staff teach and support children in every class.
“…to grow in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men”
As a school we aim to be a God-centred learning community which includes children, parents and families, staff, governors and the wider community. The bible tells us that through his youth Jesus, “grew in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and men” (Luke 2 v 52). This is also something that we want for every one of our children and for the school as a whole.
We want to be a community working together and striving for excellence and high achievement across a broad curriculum. We aim to provide the opportunity for everyone to achieve their potential within a caring, mutually supportive learning environment reflecting our Christian ethos.
Thank you for visiting!
