About Victoria Community School

Victoria Community School, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, is a successful, diverse primary school with a nursery and is rooted at the heart of its community. Part of our school includes a County funded Speech and Language Centre which is a 20 place unit offering placements for children with severe speech, language and communication issues from across East Staffordshire, Lichfield and Tamworth.
The school is located in the centre of Burton upon Trent with easy access to surrounding areas of Derby, Lichfield and Tamworth.

The school is located across two sites which are just under a mile apart. One is an old Victorian building which houses our Reception to Year Three children, with our purpose-built Nursery based across the road. Our Orchard site has our Year Four to Six students and our Speech and Language Centre. Each building is well equipped and well maintained. Our Orchard site has significant grounds and offers a range of outdoor experiences.

Our children thrive in a welcoming, supportive and caring environment. This is an opportunity for an inspirational leader to continue to enable our school to progress, building on our current achievements and continuing to secure and drive forward improvements in future performance.
