Welcome to Bowes Hutchinson’s School; we are a small and friendly village school offering our children a highly creative and innovative education. We match high expectations in learning and teaching with fun, exciting and inspirational experiences to engage our pupils.
We have small class sizes enabling personalised learning for children, whatever their needs and abilities, encouraging all children to build upon their talents and develop their skills.
We encourage parents to build a partnership with school and we believe that working together, we can prepare children to become confident, lifelong learners, thus equipping them to succeed in 21st century life.
As a Church School, we have close links with St. Giles’ Church in Bowes and the church community and Christian values underpin our ethos.
Please explore our website and have a look at the excellent facilities we have on offer; if you would like to come and visit, contact us; you will be made more than welcome by myself and the staff.

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and the children of armed services personnel.
The school has a very small proportion of children who are eligible for pupil premium. Classes throughout the school are exceptionally small and the adult : child ratio is high.
The government has provided a sports premium for the years 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16. The funding formula for schools is based on the number of primary children on roll. It is used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sports provision, and increase participation in PE and sport. We have received £8263 in Sports Premium for this academic year (2015-16) In addition to our regular weekly PE lessons which are held at the local leisure centre funded as part of our regular school budget expenditure.
