We are a three form entry school set in beautiful woodlands close to Bitterne. We pride ourselves on our nurturing ethos which permeates throughout the school. We provide exciting opportunities across the curriculum to instill a love for learning.  Our children are happy and enjoy school due to the commitment of our caring and dedicated staff. We are keen to maintain this momentum through the appointment of a dynamic, creative teacher.

‘All about the Child’
At HET, we aim to put the child at the centre of everything we do.  We believe that by doing this, it drives our ethos and values to do the best we can for our children.

‘What about Sam’
Sam is the name we have given to the notional Hamwic child.  By asking ourselves ‘What about Sam?’ we ensure that we put our pupils at the heart of our decision making.
