Welcome Message

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to St Hardulph's Church of England Primary School. St Hardulph's offers a caring and supportive environment, where all children are motivated to learn and achieve their full potential. We are proud of the school's caring, happy atmosphere, which enables children to feel secure, happy and valued.

We have dedicated and professional staff, supported by a committed and enthusiastic Governing Body working hard to make St Hardulph's the best it can be. The warm-hearted, Christian ethos that permeates St Hardulph's is very special and allows the children flourish and prepares them for the future.

Throughout the time each child is with us, we acknowledge and respect individuality; we listen and work with parents and are committed to being part of the local community. We have high expectations and seek to develop, in all our pupils, a strong sense of responsibility for their behaviour and a respect for others. 

We strive to help every child to develop intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually. We hope that you will support the school to achieve our aims by becoming part of the life of our school. We want every child's experience of our school to be both happy and successful. 

We would love you to see for yourself what a wonderful and special place St Hardulph's is so please do get in touch and come and see for yourself.

Our School Building

The old village school was built in 1874, on the edge of the village for Charles Abney Hastings, widower of the Countess of Loudon, as a memorial to his wife. It is a finely detailed village school of the period in local stone with some elaborate carving.

The current school building was built in the early 1960's to accommodate the growing number of pupils attending. The school is controlled by the Local Authority (Leicestershire County Council), who recognise the Church of England's foundation. The school is situated near to the centre of the village, opposite the quarry. Children start our school when they are 4 years old and leave us at the end of Year 6 where most transfer to Castle Donington College to start their secondary schooling.
