Head’s Welcome

Welcome to our website. Hargrave Park School is a one and a half form entry primary school, with an Under 3’s provision; our children are aged between 6 months and 11 years. We are situated in the heart of our community in Archway.

Our School Motto Is – We Aim High.

At Hargrave Park School we have the highest aspirations for our children and strive to ensure that our provision enables them to achieve their very best. We are a small school with a dedicated and hardworking staff team. As a result there is a strong ethos of care, guidance and support. Many visitors to our school comment on the fantastic welcome they receive when they come to our school. I hope you gain a flavour of this welcome from our website.

It is important that our children feel safe and happy at school. We want them to have lasting and positive memories of their primary years. We want to ensure that they are well prepared for secondary school and future life-long learning.

Our last OFSTED in May 2023 noted our ambitious curriculum as well as our outstanding provision for personal development. We are very proud of the enriched offer we provide for our children. We encourage and expect the children and staff to embrace our school values of Respect, Kindness, Resilience, Independence and Ambition.

I am immensely proud to lead such a diverse, energised and positive school community.

We encourage our staff and our children to be confident and independent in everything they do, while feeling fully supported and equipped to deliver the best they can. Children are taught to be caring, ambitious and self-sufficient through the provision of an enriched curriculum, excellent teaching and using the 16 ‘Habits of Mind’.

We teach our children to explore and understand the world so they can better care for it – and succeed in it. Hargrave Park provides an uplifting, well-resourced space for staff and children to thrive.

Best wishes
