What the school says...

Hope Community School will be single form entry primary school starting with a reception class in September 2013, rising to 210 at full capacity - growing with a new reception class each year. The school will have a religious character of Christianity but will be open to people of all faiths and those of no faith. We are a team of local people, passionate about our community who have lived, worked and delivered community projects in the area for many years.

Our vision is to achieve excellent outcomes for children and the local community. Hope Community School will be the heartbeat of the community, reaching out to local families to increase children's aspirations, encouraging a spirit of adventure and maximising each child's talents and gifts. Pupils of Hope Community School will be encouraged to dream limitlessly, explore confidently, discover expectantly and take ownership of their futures.

We are committed to every child, no matter their ability, ethnicity or background thriving throughout their education. We intend to create an encouraging and inclusive environment that extends beyond academics and into the community, using links with local businesses, offering practical and vocational opportunities as well as traditional pathways. Education should be engaging and we will inspire children to learn and develop beyond the walls of a school. Our vision is to link school and community, teaching the value of each other, in order to better prepare both for their futures.
