The Village school is situated in the small, friendly village of Coleshill, close to Amersham.

Founded in 1847, the school is a Voluntary Controlled Church School in the Parish of St. Mary’s, Amersham. The spacious building is set in its own grounds, consisting of a large playground and gardens. A recent extension to the school has added additional education space. The school is well equipped with latest information technology and has several well used PC’s.

There are currently 56 pupils attending the school.

The aim of the school is to foster, in a caring environment, the all round development of each child, encouraging at the same time self- confidence, self-discipline, responsibility and courtesy. Children follow a graded reading scheme and care is taken to hear each child read daily.

The mathematics curriculum is balanced and varied, and every opportunity is taken to practise the skills the children have learnt. The curriculum includes science, history, geography, music, art, design and technology, information technology, physical education and religious education. Children with special needs are given individual support.

The Head Teacher - Mrs. Jenny Earp brings a wealth of experience from her previous teaching posts. Despite the demands of juggling family life with a very busy head teacher's existence, Jenny looks forward to leading the School into the 21st Century. Click here to email the Head Teacher

School News - Summer 2017

Last week, the children enjoyed an entertaining, informative talk given by Howard Pool on bees, followed by an excellent ‘Bee Service’ at the church the following Sunday. The children were fascinated by the bees and learnt a lot about the important part they play in our eco system. Howard is hoping to set up a Beekeeping Club, so we will keep you updated about that.

Thank you to everyone who came to our May Fayre, held on May 13th in the school garden. Once again we were very lucky with the weather, the sun shone for most of the time and a good time was had by all. Our parents and volunteers worked hard setting up and working on the many stalls, as well as cooking the delicious barbecue food and serving refreshments. Money raised will help to buy some new toys for the children to play with at ‘Golden Time’, a special time on Friday afternoons, which the children love.

We now have a beautiful willow sculpture in our garden. Artist Tim Davies worked with the children for two days in March to produce it. We hope the children will enjoy using it for a quiet reflection area for many years to come.

The children enjoyed taking part in the ‘The Living Eggs’ project again this year. The company delivered 12 eggs and an incubator. After a couple of days, the eggs hatched and the children enjoyed watching them grow into lovely, fluffy, yellow chicks.

The whole school is taking part in an ‘Oceans’ project this term. This week the Drama4All company worked with the children on a drama workshop entitled ‘Tea Under the Sea’. Adrian Broadway will be presenting his seaside show to the children later in the term.

Our end of term musical production is ‘Humpty Dumpty - Was he pushed or did he fall?’ You are very welcome to come and watch our dress rehearsal on Monday, July 10th at 11am in the school hall. Our leavers’ end of term service will take place in the church on Friday, July 21st at 11am. Do please come and join us if you are free.
