Values and Ethos
Education has a very long history in Eye and the surrounding villages. The grammar school was founded in 1451 and there are indications of the presence of a School even before then.
The school has occupied a number of locations but is now situated in a beautiful rural campus in the middle of the Suffolk Countryside. The modern school is a mixture of older and newer buildings which are low rise and set around a central garden where the pupils spend breaks and lunchtime.
Hartismere retains a traditional but friendly ethos combining high academic standards and rich extra-curricular opportunities with a caring approach to young people.
The school’s motto: ‘Discamus ut Serviamus’ suggests our core values and ethos. The children both ‘learn and serve’. They receive a superb academic education which is rounded out by opportunities to give to and to become ever more a part of our Community.
