We look forward to when we can welcome you to our friendly and recently refurbished school!


As well as providing education to children  who live in the village, we also welcome many children and families from further afield such as Chipping Sodbury and Yate to our school family.

We are able to provide a outstanding small village school and community to families that live in the village and also larger urban areas.

If you would like to come and look around the school at any time, please give us a ring and we would be happy to show you around.

We have group open sessions in the Autumn Terms for applications for Reception the following year. More details will appear in the banner above.
