During the COVID-19 restrictions, we have one school providing key worker childcare. Please email the school for contact instead of telephoning our schools.




Thank you for visiting the Spires Federation website


Please continue to browse the pages of this website to gain a glimpse into life at each of our three schools and across the Federation. If you would like to find out a little more, or if you think our values and aspirations match those you have for your own child, we would love to show you around.    

Please contact the school offices to arrange a visit. 


We are proud to be a friendly, caring family of schools where children feel valued and secure. Our enthusiastic, dedicated staff work in partnership with our parents, Governors and local community to provide a well-planned, engaging and challenging education for all, helping each and every pupil achieve high standards. 

The children are at the centre of every decision planned and we look to support their development socially, emotionally, morally and academically so that they might be best prepared for their next steps in education, and for life in modern Britain and the world. We want every child to be excited about coming to school every day - and to leave having enjoyed their learning, deepened their knowledge and having been challenged to acquire new skills. 

We value parents as partners in the education process and there are many occasions when we invite parents into school to share in activities and to celebrate successes. 

 I hope the information on this website whets your appetite to learn more about the wonderful work that goes on in each of our schools. Please feel free to arrange a visit to any one of our schools....and if you can't wait, please check out our Federation and school twitter feeds for a snapshot of daily life across the Spires Federation. 


We are proud to be

 'small schools, with wide horizons'.

Our Federation Values

Our key values enable us to realise our vision. They focus on the key attributes that we believe every person should have to be successful in everything that they do. 






Our children are happy, well behaved and successful in their learning. We have hard-working, talented staff who are committed to supporting each and every one of our pupils and their families to ensure that we realise our vision. This has recently been written after consultation with staff, pupils, parents/carers, Governors and the Diocese. It reflects the unique qualities that every school has. It embodies where we are now and where we aspire to be in the future, to create the very best learning environments. 

Our Federation Vision:

 The Spires Federation is an inclusive, nurturing and caring family of small schools that pursues excellence through challenge and support. We enable this by:


  • Providing an energetic and stimulating and rewarding learning environment

  • Ensuring that both staff and pupils meet their potential

  • Ensure staff and pupil feel happy and safe

  • Recognise each person and as valued and valuable in the eyes of God

  • Being the beating heart of the community

  • Seeking opportunities for all members of our school communities to have wide horizons

  • Responding positively to change, to live well with difference and to feel excited about the future
