We hope you enjoy looking around our website and finding out about the wide range of activities and learning that the children enjoy.  If you are looking for a school place, you are most welcome to come and visit us.

Within Bitteswell’s thriving community, our small, friendly village school has strong links to the Church, residents, families and local schools.

Based on a Christian ethos of  Learn, Love and Believe , underpinned by our School and British values, a team of  dedicated and professional staff ensure a range of rich, challenging and exciting learning opportunities for the children in a supportive and stimulating environment.

The school still stands on and around the original school house built in 1888. Changes to the building over the years, now provide teaching areas to meet modern demands, encompassing four classrooms, a large group room, a nurture room, a library, modern computing facilities, kitchen, music room, hall and outdoor classroom.

The school is set within peaceful and attractive school grounds with a wildlife garden, trim trail, raised beds, outdoor percussion instruments, large scale wall maps and patio area with seating. The open space and resources allow the children to explore and develop their imagination and creativity both at playtimes and during lesson time.

The Governors and Friends of Bitteswell School work diligently in partnership with the school to support the development and needs of all the children, further proving the strong community commitment.

Our wrap around care provision is popular,  providing a range of activities for children of all ages to enjoy. Please see our BASC tab for more information.

We believe that a holistic approach to children’s achievement is important and we would welcome the opportunity to show you around our caring, happy and successful school.

The website can only give you a snapshot of life at St Mary’s, so please do not hesitate to contact us and see our thriving school in action.
