A happy school

PEPPARD Primary is a successful and happy school, and has been described as a small school with wide horizons due to the fact that many activities take place outside the classroom to ensure that learning is “hands-on” and experienced directly.

We pride ourselves on developing the “whole child” and being small ensures that our much-esteemed family ethos is felt by all who come to the school.

The school, which dates back to 1871, is situated on the edge of the common in Peppard, with pupils coming from the neighbouring villages of Rotherfield Greys, Highmoor and Sonning Common, although some travel from as far afield as Reading. We currently have 86 children on roll, organised into four classes.

The school is part of the Chiltern Edge and Woodcote Partnership, which consists of several local primary schools and comprehensive schools.

They combine to exchange ideas and resources and together they aim to provide extended schools’ services.

Plans have been approved and land acquired to develop new school premises on a nearby site, to provide a state-of-the-art new building. This will provide more suitable accommodation with an outside area for each class, together with playing fields in an area of outstanding beauty.
