About Us


Be the best you can be: together we grow from acorns to oaks, flourishing in God's love.
In our school community we seek to recognise the God-given potential of every learner.  With enthusiasm, our dedicated staff aim to ensure that all children flourish and develop into confident, responsible and selfless members of their community, based on shared Christian values.
We are a co-educational day school for children aged 4 - 11 in the village of Bream in the Forest of Dean. The school's foundation dates back to 1907 and the current school building was once the infant and secondary school with a junior school in the present Community Centre building.

Facilities have been extensively modernised with the provision of two new infant classrooms, a multi-purpose hall, group room with IT facilities and refurbishment of a substantial portion of the main building. Outdoor facilities include playgrounds and a nearby school field.

Currently 148 on roll and organised in six classes, we serve the Forest of Dean community of Bream in providing a good quality primary education for children of a wide range of abilities and different backgrounds. We receive children from several local pre school centres but enjoy a particularly close working relationship with Bream Early Learners group. As we are centrally placed, children leave our school to attend various local secondary schools. We foster close links with Dean Academy (Lydney), Five Acres High School (Coleford) and Wyedean School (Nr Chepstow). Some pupils also take selective entrance tests for schools in Monmouth and Gloucester.

As a Church school we centre everything around our Core Values which are:

                   PERSEVERANCE, TRUST, TRUTH and HOPE

We have strong links with our local Church St James'.
