Church Valley Schools Federation



Small schools, big aspirations;

Branching out for learning




Our federation comprises of two small, rural primary schools; Shoscombe Church (VA) Primary School and  St Julian’s Church (VC) Primary School.  Our schools are situated within six miles of each other in the undulating countryside surrounding Bath – an enviable environment within which to learn.

The schools within our federation have long and proud histories of serving their beautiful, rural communities and each has its own unique identity. Now operating together as one organisation, with one Governing Body and Leadership Team, we are best placed to offer our children the highest possible standard of 21st Century teaching and learning.

Our federation prides itself on providing a friendly, caring, family environment within which children can flourish. We seek to stimulate the love of learning in our children so that they want to learn for themselves and achieve to the very best of their abilities. Every child is valued as an individual and encouraged to find their best-selves within a setting where they are happy, well cared for and, most importantly, where they care for each other.


Jesus said ‘I am the vine and you are the branches.

If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit’ (John 15:5).
