The School first opened in 1863 and lies in the heart of the Clun Valley. It has been extensively modernised since the 1970’s. We have recently completed a phased programme to further update our facilities including building a brand new eco-friendly classroom last year.
We have four spacious classrooms including a purpose-built Foundation Stage Unit with its own outdoor classroom which includes a traditionally-built play farmhouse and barn for role play and a huge sandpit (the beach). The gardens, including a highly productive organic vegetable garden, are distinctive features maintained by pupils.
Our outdoor areas are extremely important to us, providing excellent learning and recreational facilities for the children. We have a beautiful interactive outdoor classroom in the main playground where children can play and reflect, an environmental area including a pond, and areas for playing sports.
All children (courtesy of Mr and Mrs R Parish) access our Forest School site which is based in the stunning Arboretum at Walcot Hall
