About Us

Our school vision and values 

The school motto,     embodies our vision for our whole school community.   

At Harpur Hill we aim to provide:

  • A learning community where all children can achieve their best.
  • Excellent and inspiring teaching that enables children to reach the highest standards.
  • An engaging, skills-based curriculum, taught through rich social and cultural experiences.
  • A curriculum that is locally relevant yet globally aware.

Harpur Hill School aims to provide every child with an excellent educational experience that is enjoyable, stimulating and enables them to reach their full potential as successful learners.



We hold the highest expectations of all our pupils, challenging them to strive for academic, creative, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.

We celebrate determination, resilience and risk-taking, ensuring children welcome challenge and are not afraid to make mistakes. We encourage pupils to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning, so they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and respond to quality feedback. Children are praised for hard work, determination and having a positive attitude.

It is our aim for all children to leave Harpur Hill Primary School as independent learners having self-belief and respect for others. We want all our children to develop a love of learning that will equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary for an ever-changing and exciting future. We work towards one common goal that underpins all we do –‘Learning for Life’.

The safeguarding and welfare of our pupils is extremely important and you can find more in the Key Information section.
