Welcome to Hempsted C. of E. Primary School


Our school lies in an idyllic village setting, only about 2½km from Gloucester city centre, but isolated from the main urban area by the Gloucester canal. The River Severn to the west actually makes the environs an island! 

We are one of the smallest of the Gloucester City Primary Schools, with a welcoming, family atmosphere, yet aiming to give our children the facilities and opportunities that are normally only on offer at a larger school. And our active parents’ association and close links with St. Swithuns Church keep the school at the heart of the community.
