Welcome from the Head

I love working in this school. Something really quite special exists in the ether in and around this village and the school can’t help but be swept up in it. We are all passionate about learning, strongly committed to the school’s vision and the place is run through with positivity, creativity and kindness. 

“I think Minch is different because we are all so close as a community” 
(Year 6 Leaver) 

Our pupils bring as much to this equation as the adults. I think they are remarkable and deserve the best and I am proud that during their time here, they grow into confident, well-rounded individuals. 

“I enjoy being in my class because I like to learn in a happy environment” 
(Year 3 Student) 

We believe education should be about self-empowerment for people, self-empowerment now and for a lifetime. As an institution, we would define a school’s excellence as much by its fierce determination to keep trying as by its humble acceptance that it is not there yet; as much by its individuality as by its commitment to all the individuals within it.

Our School Vision

We cherish all the people in our school

Our aim for them:  
‘Life in all its fullness’           

For us this means people who are flourishing:

●people who have the wherewithal to shape their own life well;

●people who take a delight in learning;

●people who are compassionate, who appreciate the value and preciousness of each and every person and all life on earth;

hence people who help to make the world a better place.

‘Life in all its fullness’

We look to find what is great inside all of our children:

we want to dig it out
and share it with the world.
