Our Christian ethos encourages supportive friendships with, and between, both civilian and military communities. We aspire for pupils always to feel safe and valued here as part of Hipswell School, growing naturally towards becoming confident, independent, self-motivated and compassionate individuals, who make a life-giving contribution to the world.

Dear parents, carers and visitors,

A warm welcome to our school. Hipswell Church of England Primary is a friendly, caring and successful primary school with 195 children.

We are located in Catterick Garrison near the newly-developed town centre where there is a vide variety of shops, supermarkets and restaurants. There is also an Empire Cinema beside Catterick Garrison Leisure Centre and Swimming Pool. Hipswell is situated near the picturesque market town of Richmond and close to the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales.

Hipswell Church of England Primary is particularly experienced in integrating children successfully from military and non-military backgrounds, with two thirds of our pupils coming from families where one or more parent is serving with the Armed Forces. We also have excellent links with St. John’s Church and the Army Welfare Service. We work collaboratively with our colleagues from our cluster schools and we are a member of the Swaledale Teaching Alliance.
