Our principle aim: To provide the best possible education for each
child, within the context of a caring, Christian community.
On behalf of everyone at St Ippolyts C of E Primary School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and your family. Our website aims to give you an insight into the life of our school and illustrate what makes St Ippolyts School special to those who teach, work and learn here.
Founded in 1847, St Ippolyts Primary is a Voluntary Aided Church of England School enjoying strong links with St Ippolyts Church and within the Diocese of St Albans. Our principal aim is to provide the best possible education for each individual child, underpinned by Christian Values.
We believe that each child is unique and we seek to provide academic, emotional, social and spiritual support for each one, working in partnership with parents and families. We want our children to be spirited individuals who embrace challenge, think creatively, value achievement and strive to be the best they can be. We encourage each of our learners to actively contribute to our community and to support others.
At St Ippolyts we strive to provide a broad and stimulating curriculum, full of opportunities to excite and motivate our children. We foster relationships built on mutual respect and care for each other and we are extremely proud of all that goes on here.
If you would like to visit us to see our wonderful children in action, you would be most welcome; please telephone the school office to make an appointment and I would be delighted to show you around.

In PE this week we had a football tournament. There was a scoreboard with six teams. Four went into the semi-final and two went into the final. The blue team won (Oscar). On Wednesday evening there was a music evening and some adults came to listen to the music (Joseph). Yesterday we celebrated Charles Darwin's birthday and pretended we were his shipmates and did lots of fun activities (Patrick).
