Our Vision:

At Hutchinson Memorial, our Christian foundations are at the heart of everything we do.  We strive for every child to be resilient, adaptable and to flourish in an ever-changing world through an inspiring, enriched curriculum.  Our vision is to provide a happy, loving, nurturing school where we can ignite a passion for learning and an ambition for everyone to fulfil their hopes and dreams.


We are a popular village school which prides itself in creating a happy, caring atmosphere within which everyone is encouraged to achieve their full potential and develop a love of learning.

All children are given the opportunity to make the very best of their unique talents and everyone is valued. We work closely with parents to ensure that all the children are happy and settled in school and are able to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to become confident life-long learners.

Our truly dedicated, experienced and enthusiastic staff are passionate about providing the very best learning opportunities for all the children in our care.

We look forward to welcoming you to our happy, safe and creative school in the near future.
