Small enough to care.... Big enough to achieve

Many schools, especially here in beautiful Cumbria, can boast of magnificent settings, small class sizes and innovative teaching alongside good results. However, not all can say that they are small enough to know every child as an individual; to be able to nurture and develop their true potential in order that each may recognise the area in which they will shine, be it academically, creatively or physically. We are very proud of the conducive and active learning environment we provide at Hunter Hall. In essence we are small enough to care but big enough to achieve; our Year 6 leavers’ destinations speak for themselves. Just browse through the following pages and see for yourself. We look forward to meeting you soon.
