About Grove Church of England School

Grove CE Primary School is a warm, welcoming school with fantastic staff who are dedicated to building on our current high standards and achievements by teaching a rich, varied curriculum.

We have grown significantly in the last few years, with the 196 pupils running from Reception to Year 6. Our children are enthusiastic learners who are keen to challenge themselves, to take risks and to succeed within a secure and supportive environment.

Everyone who enters the school finds a very warm and friendly atmosphere. It comes from being a true village school and from having committed and caring staff and governors.

We offer children a wide range of opportunities, whether on the sports pitches, being creative in Art, playing instruments as part of our music group or singing in our choir, exploring our outside spaces, or through academic achievement. We want every child’s light to shine!
