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, to the front and rear of the school, are distinctive features maintained by parents and 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
