‘Where Learning Never Ends’

Ardleigh St. Mary’s is a smaller than average church school and is currently oversubscribed. It serves pupils from the village of Ardleigh and beyond, so a significant number travel some distance to the school. The majority of pupils are from white British backgrounds.The school benefits from a supportive Friends Of Association who have raised significant funds over the years.

It is housed in a Victorian building which has been considerably refurbished and extended. There is also an extensive outside area: located behind the hall is a working garden including a 50ft polytunnel and a chicken enclosure. In addition to this there is also a well-used Forest School area on site. This summer, we were fortunate to have the addition of an outdoor timber built classroom and a stage area. There is also a school kitchen which provides freshly cooked nutritious food every day.
