School Information

OUR SCHOOL

Hoole St Michael Church of England Primary School is a voluntary aided school offering a primary education to 4-11 year olds and is maintained by Lancashire County Council as the local authority.

The school serves the local communities of Much Hoole and Little Hoole as well as attracting families from as far as Penwortham and Tarleton.

The original school building dates back to 1850 and is set in pleasant surroundings with extensive playing fields. In 1995 additions were made to the building with further refurbishments in 2002 and 2005. Recent work has resulted an SEN/intervention room which has been provided due to the creation of a new headteacher's office; a mezzanine floor which has provided a much needed larger staff room and an additional small classroom to our four classrooms which can be used for small group work. We have also extended our reception outdoor area. Recent landscaping work has resulted in a stimulating and well resourced outdoor space which provides one of the best possible environments in which to learn.

 

SCHOOL LOGO

Our school logo is quite unique in that it celebrates the work of Jeremiah Horrocks, the astronomer. He was a lay reader at Hoole St Michael Church when he discovered the transit of Venus in 1639

OUR CHURCH SCHOOL

Our school is a Church of England Aided School. This means that our school is partially funded by the Blackburn Church of England Diocese. It also means that Christian teaching is at the heart of everything we do.

Our school can be described as a small school, which in turn means that our community is very close knit. Everybody knows everybody! We also have the advantage of being able to offer small reception class sizes, which help our children make a flying start in their first year with a very favourable pupil teacher ratio.

‘Parents and carers strongly agree that their children are well taught and typical comments mention the warm ethos and the efforts teachers make to promote home learning.’

‘Pupils make good progress throughout the school and reach above average standards by the time they leave Year 6.’
