Headteacher's Welcome


“Giving all our children

the best chance."

I am immensely proud to be Headteacher of our small, family orientated school. As a Head I do, of course, strive for academic excellence, but I firmly believe that school should be more than that.  It should be about discovery and opportunity, about respect, reliability and resilience. Our children are hardworking and enthusiastic about their learning but they are also friendly and caring and value other people's achievements as well as their own. We are very much a team at Hatch Ride – parents, governors and staff working together to give the children the best chances we can. 


Do come and visit us at Hatch Ride – we just love the chance to show off our school.

And a note from the Governors

We strive to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for our children, where personal achievement and respect for others is recognised and valued. We offer a wide range of exciting opportunities for all children to help them grow into independent and responsible young people with a love for learning. Our children thrive in a warm, friendly atmosphere of mutual respect and trust, as we know that children learn best if they feel safe and happy.


However, please don’t just take our word for it…!

When we asked our children what words they would use to describe our school, here’s what they said:


  • Hatch Ride Primary School
  • Hatch Ride Primary School,
  • Hatch Ride,
  • Crowthorne,
