Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to St Mary’s CE VC Primary School.  Our small, friendly school aims to enable each child to achieve their full potential so that they are prepared to move onto their next stage of learning with the confidence and skills that they will need. At St Mary’s, we pride ourselves on creating a positive, family feel atmosphere in which everyone can thrive.

As a school, we are often recognised for our extensive, spacious grounds which play a large role in the delivery of our ‘Broad and Balanced’ Curriculum. We use our grounds for regular Outdoor Learning and Forest School sessions and to host sporting events including Cross-Country events with other local schools. We have an on-site swimming pool which all children use regularly in the Summer Months along with a beautiful wildlife garden, polytunnel area, gardening patch and small nearby woodland.

We warmly welcome visits to the school and would be proud to show you what we have to offer. If you would like to visit us at St Mary’s please give us a ring on 01460 30 535 or email the school at office@stmarysthorncombe.co.uk.

Miss Emily Smith
