Welcome to Crowcombe CE VA & Stogumber CE Primary Schools.
Crowcombe & Stogumber Federated C of E Primary Schools are situated at the foot of the Quantock Hills, an area of outstanding beauty, deep in rural Somerset. Our school community is based on a foundation of compassion, co-operation, investigation and creativity. We are driven by high standards and an enthusiastic love of learning, within a positive Christian ethos.
We share an Executive Headteacher, a governing body and a PTA. This enables us to offer extended opportunities to our children with a wider range of activities and staff expertise. We have our own mini-bus which is used on a daily basis to provide free transport between the schools.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 from both schools are educated at Stogumber, and all children in Years 3,4, 5 & 6 are taught at Crowcombe in facilities which have recently been improved to facilitate Key Stage 2. We have small classes and a high ratio of adults to children which enables pupils of all abilities to learn to their full potential.

Mr Daniel Perry
Interim Executive Headteacher
At this time of turmoil and war in places such as Syria and Afghanistan,
At this time of fear and desperation for refugees seeking safety,
Let us take this moment to think about everything that is good in our lives,
Such as the beauty of the world around us,
Friends that care for us,
Family that love us,
Teachers and adults in our school that support us,
Farmers that grow the crops that will feed us all year.
Let us appreciate the things we cannot put a price on and make sure we can make a positive difference to the world we share.
