Choosing a School
Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. We hope that the information on our website gives an insight into our small, friendly academy. Our aim is to create an environment in which every child is happy and achieving his or her full potential.
As a Church of England academy we uphold the values of the Christian faith and work closely with our local churches and the diocese, as well as the local community and local authority.
We cater for children from the villages of Alderford, Attlebridge, Great Witchingham, Lenwade, Morton-on-the-Hill and Weston Longville. Parents from outside this catchment area may also choose our school because of its Christian ethos.
As a member of the Trinity Federation of Church Academies, we work together with Hockering and St Peters, Easton Church Academies. We benefit from their additional skills, strengths and experiences, as well as being able to share resources, as well as our governing body and head teacher.

As a small school of around 78 pupils, the children at Great Witchingham are taught in four classes as follows:
|Willow Class||Year 1 & 2|
|Beech Class||Years 3 / 4|
|Oak Class||Years 5 / 6|
Our class organisation as a small school has a number of advantages:
- Members of staff get to know each child extremely well
- Children are seen as individuals and work is adapted to suit each child’s ability
- There is a ‘family’ atmosphere, often lacking in larger schools
- Younger children look up to the older ones and raise their standard accordingly
- Older children take responsibility for the younger ones
All parents, carers, grannies and grandads are welcome to come into school on Friday morning to join the whole school for assembly.
Assembly starts at 9am.
