Our School

Welcome to Hugh Myddelton

At Hugh Myddelton Primary School we believe in laying the foundations on which children can build their futures. Staff work hard to instill an early love for learning: they aim to capture and nurture it, enabling our children to grow into confident, independent and successful individuals.

Our curriculum aspires to equip children with the knowledge, understanding and basic skills they will need as they continue their learning journey through primary education and beyond. We value the parallel development of our children’s personal, social and academic skills, firmly believing that these are fundamental to them achieving success in all aspects of their future lives as citizens in modern Britain.

We aim to provide a creative and stimulating learning environment within which we expect our learners to aim for and achieve the highest possible standards in all they do. We also count on the full support of parents and carers. Hugh Myddelton aspires to be a happy, vibrant and successful school community where everyone tries their very best.
