Facta Non Verba Action Not Words


A message from Mrs. K. Karwacinski, Headteacher:


St. Mary's Hare Park is a happy school. Our best advertisement is our children, who work hard and play hard in a caring, secure environment. We pride ourselves on the individual attention that ensures excellent progress in all areas of our broad and balanced curriculum.


The best way to appreciate our school is to experience it for yourself.  You are warmly welcome to visit us, meet the staff and children and experience the happy ethos of our community.


We are justly proud of being accredited in 2015 with Outstanding status in our Ofsted and Diocese of Brentwood Religious Education Inspections and being reaccredited with the Early Years Quality Mark (an award that celebrates and supports continuous improvement in literacy and numeracy.)
