"Fordcombe is a great school and is very welcoming. The activities you do in lessons are always fun and it’s great at doing events like the Christmas play and sports day."
Pupil in Year 5


We asked our pupils what they would advise prospective parents and students:

"It’s a great school and don’t hesitate to say yes!" "Fordcombe is an excellent school and the children are really nice.""You will be welcomed and looked after and most of all have fun." Come! It's a fantastic school.


We asked our parents the same question:

"Have a look round, see the children, meet the staff" "It’s got so much to offer and the small size shouldn’t put you off. The small size is a positive."  "Fordcombe school welcomes you with open arms. My children skip into school and enjoying going that’s priceless."


"If you want an environment that focusses only on academia do not choose Fordcombe. If you want a broad education with the focus on having a happy child who excels at academia, chose Fordcombe!""Probably one of the best village schools in the UK. A place where children are all individually thought of and recognised allowing them to feel comfortable at school. A brilliant team of staff who work hard to put the children first in all areas of life. A very fun learning atmosphere too."



"Fordcombe is a lovely school and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a local village school.""Your child will come out of primary school feeling valued, confident and ready for secondary school.""Send them to Fordcombe; your children will be really happy. They will feel part of a big family and will become confident and flourish."
