Hackthorn Church Of England Primary School

A small traditional school with a modern outlook

Welcome to Hackthorn School

We are delighted to welcome you to Hackthorn C of E Primary School's website. We hope as you browse the site it will give you an insight into the life of our school, our ethos and our vision.


We are a small Church of England Primary School set in the beautiful rural village of Hackthorn, just outside the city of Lincoln, maintained and administered by the Education Department of Lincolnshire County Council.

As a church school, our faith is important and we follow the Christian values in all we do: the way that we treat each other, the way that we look for opportunities to help those in need and the practical application of our values.  We believe that everyone has a part to play as a responsible member of not only our learning environment but in our local community and wider society.

We know that happy children make fantastic learners.  Our aim is to provide an environment that is conducive to making happy learners.  The child is at the heart of everything we do and we take great pleasure in nurturing our pupils and celebrating their individual achievements both within and outside the school environment.  The size of our school allows us to know each pupil thoroughly and to foster a friendly, family atmosphere.

We are delighted to welcome you to Hackthorn C of E Primary School's website. Please do not hestiate to contact us at school for any further information or to arrange a visit so that you can experience 'the Hackthorn way!'


Mrs Karen Appleby, Headteacher
