Whether it is the friendly welcome you receive when you walk into our school or seeing the many families using our grounds after school to play and meet others, as soon as you walk through the gates you will feel part of our community. Welcome to Hitherfield Primary School and Children’s Centre.
Our vision is to create a school community where everyone feels valued, has the opportunity to explore, develop their strengths and participate in new experiences. Our aim is an inspirational school creating good people in an atmosphere that promotes confidence, high academic achievement, physical health and emotional well-being.
We believe education is a partnership between the school, the child and their family. Hitherfield has served the local area since the 19th Century and continues to do so with our modern, well-resourced school buildings in stunning grounds; including three playgrounds, a field, trim trail, nature area, edible playground and a ball court.
Our pupils make outstanding progress academically, physically and socially, consistently above national progress averages. We are a ‘Lead Food Flagship School for Lambeth’ and share our food growing and healthy lifestyle expertise with other schools. We have won many awards and recognition including the Inclusion Quality and Arts Marks, and our pupils have won local and national competitions: the London-wide Robo-Challenge; local Athletics Championships; local football leagues, as well as being finalists in the national Microsoft Kodu cup for digital game design.
We hold the Gold School Travel Award and are a Bronze Healthy Schools London School.
We believe in the whole child and growing together.
