About Our School
The school caters for children from Foundation Stage (Reception) through to Year Six (age 11). Children then go on to the nearby Litcham High School. The Ducklings Pre-school Playgroup is based in a mobile building onsite to the rear of the school (www.ducklingspre-school.co.uk).
The original building is traditional Victorian style, founded in 1874. The School benefits from a modern, well-equipped library that was new in 2008, a new staff building, up to date computer equipment, colourful playground markings, adventure areas, a playing field and a school garden with raised beds where children ‘grow their own'. The School is also very much involved in the village ‘Biodiversity Project' and has helped to clear and replant what is known as the School Pond area in Weasenham Road, in the village.
The school grounds have delightful views of the Church of St Mary's, and rolling fields and woods beyond. The playing fields are secure and spacious and the programme of environmental improvements over the last 9 years has seen the establishment of two ‘wild' areas, tree planting and a log trail.
