Harrowby Church of England Primary School

Harrowby Church of England Primary School is a friendly school, where children learn in an exciting yet nurturing environment with an engaging, creative curriculum. Our school motto, “Aim high believe, fly high achieve”, is at the heart of everything we do. Education is firmly based on Christian principles and values. The school’s primary aim is for children to achieve the greatest possible success in their academic, personal, social, moral, physical and spiritual development. We encourage this by providing for the children a happy, safe and challenging environment, where excellence is our main goal. Watch this video to find out more.

Our Church School is distinctive because:
  • Everyone who works in our school supports its Christian foundation and ethos.
  • We work hard to make strong links between our school, our homes, our church and our community.
  • We care about the spiritual development of everyone in our school community.
  • We learn about 6 Core Christian values (Friendship, Forgiveness, Wisdom, Trust, Peace, Endurance) to understand what Christians believe and how we can apply them into our own lives.
  • We enjoy our Collective Worship together as part of our daily school life.
  • We share our school life with our Trustees and ministers from our local churches.

All of what we do is centred on our school motto of “Aim High Believe, Fly High Achieve” which is derived from the Bible Verse “Those who trust in the Lord will become strong again. They will be able to rise up and soar like an eagle in the sky.” Isaiah 40 v31. This is taken from one of the Christian Values. (See below for the 6 Core Christian Values and Bible References.)
