Welcome to Purwell Primary School

Welcome to Purwell Primary school. Purwell is a small, inclusive, nurturing, and family orientated one-form entry school. The school is built on a hilltop overlooking Hitchin within the community of Purwell. The school, is a central part of the community, which is very exciting, and there are many opportunities for children, parents, governors and staff to play an integral part of shaping the Purwell community.

At Purwell, our school motto is, ‘we do our best all the time’. The Governors, Head Teacher and staff work together as a team, to offer the children an opportunity to reach their full potential, in a safe and happy environment. The children are supported by staff who are both motivated and passionate about learning and ensure the children are enriched by the curriculum, through educational visits, embracing topics, bringing learning to life.

We place a great deal of emphasis on our partnership with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school, work together for their benefit. Children bring into school a wealth of knowledge and understanding about the world around them and it is our aim to build on these skills and promote a willingness and enthusiasm to learn more.

We have high expectations of learning and behaviour to allow pupils opportunities to fulfil their full potential and learn lifelong skills. We are a small school but there is nothing small about what Purwell offers, for the growth and success for all children.
