‘though it is the smallest of seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of plants and becomes a tree, so that birds come and perch in its shade’
We are a Forest School
St Katharine’s is a small Church of England primary school set in the beautiful and unique location of Savernake Forest. The Forest School programme enables children to fulfil curriculum learning in the outdoor environment.
What our parents are saying
Both of our children have flourished at St Katharine’s. Their different personalities and interests understood and encouraged in a way that supported and enthused them. The staff are fully invested in the school and in the pupils and are keen for the children to develop and fulfil their own potential. The school is small enough to have a caring and nurturing environment, but ambitious for all pupils to embrace all possibilities and opportunities.
The unique and frankly glorious location is something that makes the school stand out. It is something that the school is well are aware of and they use their surroundings to further enrich the school life.
We will miss the school when we are no longer part of its special environment.
