Hungerford School officially become part of The Bridge London Trust on 1st May 2018. Our vision is to enable all of our students to meet their full potential whilst keeping in mind the child centred ethos that you will find in the Outstanding Special Schools within our Trust. We believe that children learn best when they are happy and interested and treated as individuals. We use Positive Behaviour Support and Intervention in order to make sure that our school is a calm and happy place for children to learn and are working alongside Windesheim University in Amsterdam to develop this approach. We pride ourselves on our use of Project Based Learning (PBL), a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge. We know that all children can succeed if they are taught using approaches which are individual to their needs and talents. We provide a high level of support for all of our children and try to think creatively in order to help them to reach their goals.
The School Leadership team are Miss Stephens, Head of School, and Mr Tranter, Assistant Head for Behaviour and Inclusion. The School Leadership team are in the playground every morning so please come and say hello.
Linda and Elizabeth who both work in the school office are very happy to arrange appointments with the School Leadership Team if there is something about your child that you would like to discuss.
Welcome to Early Years – Asia Newson Class
Our class teachers are Miss Massouras and Mrs Lambrou.
We learn through play both in the classroom and in our outside area. We focus on the prime areas of learning – personal, social and emotional development; communication and language; and physical development – as well as mathematics, literacy, expressive art and design and understanding the world.
Welcome to Year One – Bisa Butler Class
Our teachers are Mrs Chambi and Mrs Boda.
Although we are working on national curriculum objectives we use a very similar approach to Early Years. Play is still very important and one of the best ways for us to learn so we make sure that our curriculum is as fun.
Welcome to Year Two – Madam C.J. Walker Class
Our teacher is Miss Ali. In Year Two we have a very practical curriculum. We like to take our learning outside of the classroom as much as possible and still fit in some time for play.
Welcome to Year Three – William Shakespeare Class
Our teacher is Miss McLaughlin.
Welcome to Year Four – Taylor Swift Class
Mrs Elkins and Miss Leonard are our teachers.
Although by Year Four there is a lot of work to do we make sure that there is plenty of room for fun and creativity. We take part in a Writing through Art project where we improve our writing through visiting galleries and writing about paintings. We also have a School Journey to Cardfields in the Autumn of Year 4.
Welcome to Year Five – Banksy Class
Our teacher is Miss Georgiou. We have to work very hard in Year Five but our teachers love making our curriculum as practical as possible. We take part in lots of science experiments and we go on as many trips as possible and this year we are taking part in the Philosophy for Children project with other Islington schools.
Welcome to Year Six – Chadwick Boseman Class
Mr Fletcher is our teacher. We take our SATS in Year Six but our teacher tries to make sure that we improve without even noticing that we are working hard. We are also going to be taking part in a poetry project and working alongside a real poet later on in the year.
Marcus Rashford class
Mr Downey is our teacher.
