Welcome to Stisted Church of England Primary Academy


         ‘This is a happy, caring, inclusive school with a very 

        special atmosphere’


Andrew Scott, Inspector for National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools




I hope this website aims to give you a flavour of what our school is like, as well as providing regular updated information for parents, pupils and parents considering applying for a place.


That said, there is no substitue to visiting us to get a real feel for the community we have created. Children learn best when they are cared for and feel valued and special. I am always proud to show visitors around our school because I know wherever we go there will be purposeful learning and a warm feel that makes this a special place to be.


Our school was originally founded in 1836 to provide education within a Christian context for the children of the village and surrounding farm cottages. Today, we serve the local community and beyond for parents who wish to educate their children in a small popular thriving village school.


I trained as a teacher St Mary's College, Twickenham before taking on my first class of 36 infants in small Epsom, Surrey in 1993. I have been at Stisted since 2001 and found my niche in working and understanding the importance of small schools.


I am a strong advocate of small Church of England schools not only for the type of education and experience they provide, but also to how they can contribute to the education system as a whole.


I am really proud that we developed a very strong reputation for inclusion and our work with children with Special Education Needs whilst stretching our higher performing children and consistently acheiving well above national average results for reading, writing and mathematics.




It's quite simple really. People.


I am proud of our children and the people who work with me because they care, are dedicated and go that extra mile.


‘This is an extremely successful school characterised by a positive atmosphere of calm enthusiasm and exceptionally good relationships among all members of the school community’.


Andrew Scott, Inspector for National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools





We have a proud local reputation for inclusion and diversity and meeting the needs of all our learners. We have established our own enhanced provision setting for children with additional and life-long learning needs as well as provision for children working beyond age related expectations.


We try and provide a rich and varied school curriculum including promoting their personal, social, moral, spiritual and cultural development as well as academic achievement.
