"The teachers are outstanding. From the moment we came to look around. Never felt so welcome. My daughter (age 6) after looking around and again after day 1 said “I feel very at home here”.
Parent of pupil in Year 1
"The teachers are incredible! They always go above and beyond the office staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful. They set a really nurturing tone. The teachers work well as a team and are all really approachable and supportive of every child and family."
Parent of pupil in Year 5 
"The office staff are so helpful and genuinely care for the children.  It amazes me that such a small school attracts teachers and teaching assistants with such experience and wide ranging skill sets.  Fordcombe punches above its weight in terms of the quality of the teaching staff."

"The office team are extraordinary - Mags holds all the finances together, Michelle answers all our daft parent enquiries with such patience and good humour and Ness, well.. Ness holds us all together - parents, kids, the school  and she does it with a twinkle in her eye, a chuckle at the challenge and an abundance of care - there is so much love in that little team of three... I would be utterly lost without them"
