Why work for us?

Sherston is a thriving village Primary rated Good by Ofsted. In a recent inspection (July 2021) Ofsted found that:

  • Leaders and staff are ambitious for all pupils. They place significant importance on ‘learning, caring and achieving together’
  • Pupils are unanimous in their view that this is a happy and safe place to learn.
  • Pupils show positive attitudes in lessons. This means that interruptions to learning are rare.
  • Pupils with SEND thrive in a supportive environment.

 

In addition, we offer

  • A unique school set in beautiful grounds, in a modern purpose-built building, with on-site parking, in the heart of a pretty Cotswold village
  • Joyful, enthusiastic children with a love of learning
  • A strongly committed and united staff
  • A supportive school community, including parents and governors
  • Close ties to the local parish
  • A supportive leadership team

 

Visits to the school are encouraged and warmly welcomed in term time. To arrange a visit please contact the School Business Manager, Mrs Sarah Mackrill on 01666-840237.
