At Hampden Gurney School, we offer a stimulating, happy and safe learning environment, underpinned by our Christian ethos, for pupils to achieve and become responsible citizens.


Hampden Gurney School is a community based on Christian teaching in which priority is given to prayer and worship, equality of opportunity, mutual respect and service to others. We provide a challenging learning experience within the confines of the National Curriculum. Hampden Gurney is committed to helping all pupils achieve their personal best and to become responsible members of society.


We aim to provide:

  • A foundation of Christian teachings and values.
  • The highest possible achievements by each pupil in our multi-cultural society.
  • A positive partnership with the parents and wider community.
  • A happy, safe and stimulating environment.
  • A broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum.


This website and the information that it contains gives you a flavour of what our mission statement means in practice. It means happy children who feel welcomed and welcome others to their school. It means children who are engaged with their learning, are excited by education and are motivated and want to achieve. It means children who are successful and know they are valued. It means children that have respect for themselves and have respect for one another. It means children that understand the teachings of Christ and understand how these lessons can help them in their daily lives.
