HYDE CHURCH OF ENGLAND PRIMARY SCHOOL
Headteacher: Mrs J. Dalziell
Hyde School is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School where Christian values are promoted within a caring family environment in which purposeful teaching and learning can take place. The school was founded in 1885, and is housed in an attractive Grade 2 Listed Victorian building, set within a rural community in the middle of the New Forest. The school building is on the edge of Hyde Common which serves as a very special playground and sports field. The majority of children attending the school today are from families living within the catchment area, from the local parish or because they have a family link with the school.
The original school building has been adapted over the years and is well resourced for the needs of modern education. The school is organised into three classes with an excellent library and a well-resourced outdoor covered play area for our youngest children. In addition to our Head teacher and three class teachers, the children are supported by our team of excellent classroom assistants, Administrative Officer and our lunchtime supervisory assistants.
Hyde School is one of the smallest schools in Hampshire with an average of 60 to 70 pupils on roll. As a school with small classes, we are able to get to know the children and their families well. This knowledge enables us to pay careful attention to all aspects of each child's development throughout their time with us. Our pupils develop a real sense of belonging to a community and the older ones enjoy looking out for the younger ones as they settle into life at school.
Everyone within the school community is valued equally and encouraged to develop their individual potential. The achievement of each individual child is our constant focus and we work closely in partnership with parents to ensure that each child succeeds. Progress and attainment in all areas of school life are constantly encouraged and monitored by the staff and the governors of the school.
The local pre-school meet in the Church Rooms of Hyde Church.
