Hugh Myddelton Primary School is an outstanding school with a vibrant community made up of different heritages, cultures and languages.  Our school thrives in one of the most deprived areas in Islington: 70% of our pupils have English as an additional language, 44% are eligible for free school meals and we have an above-average number of pupils with Educational Healthcare Plans. 

At HM, we inspire and encourage pupils’ independence, curiosity, perseverance and critical thinking skills through a range of initiatives and specialised teaching practices. We foster a calm environment that prides success, excellence and respect for all. 

We strive for all of our children to achieve academic excellence; helping them to reach their potential through carefully sculpted teaching, weekly pupil progress meetings and tailored interventions. In our core subjects, last year 96% achieved the expected standard in Reading, 95% in Writing and 96% in Maths.

In addition to our high academic achievement, we value the importance of developing well-rounded pupils, who build positive relationships. We have an innovative and dynamic Early Years curriculum and teaching team. All of our initiatives start in EYFS and develop as the children progress throughout the school. These include: French, Outdoor Learning and Music. At Hugh Myddelton, every child takes part in daily music or singing lessons in addition to being offered the opportunity to learn an instrument, ranging from violin, guitar, recorder, keyboard and more.

We seek out our pupils’ talents and identify what motivates them individually. As a result we offer a range of extra-curricular activities such as karate, art, yoga and debating. Additionally, we offer a rich and engaging curriculum that results in outstanding outcomes for all our pupils. Recently we re-developed our car park into a farm for the children. Our pupils can now feed a range of animals, collect eggs, learn about farming processes and gardening with a hands-on approach. We also have a partnership with our local University where our Key Stage 2 children are able to attend workshops that include law, journalism, music, languages and engineering.
