Our school is situated at the edge of the town of Bromsgrove and serves the community of Lickey End. It has a rural aspect and has the feel of a village school even though it is extremely close to major route ways such as the M42. Many parents have attended the school as pupils in the past, and we feel that the family atmosphere and friendly, open door policy is a strong feature of the school and the partnership that grows between us. The ethos of our school is very important too. The values we instil in the children of trust and mutual respect, honesty and caring will take them through life so that they become very moral, successful and confident citizens in the future. We are very proud of our First School and the education and opportunities it provides for the children and families of Lickey End.
