FORT Federation

Welcome to Awliscombe


“Growing together and aiming High”

Welcome to Awliscombe Church of England Primary School.

We are a unique rural village school which is nestled on the edge of the Blackdown hills. We are in partnership with Payhembury Church of England Primary School and together we make the FORT federation.
FORT stands for Fostering friendship, One vision, Readiness to learn and Trusting in God. Our schools are only a few miles apart.

We are a small, friendly and caring school committed to providing education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.

Although we are small, with numbers of around 70, we provide education for children aged from four to eleven, organised into four classes. We also have a governor led Pre-school which can take children from 3 years old.

We believe the relationship between the school and the parent is vitally important to the child's overall development. We are always pleased to answer questions and discuss important issues you may wish to raise

We hope the website will provide the information you seek and will be of help to you. It cannot, of course, replace a visit to the school. Such a visit would enable you to chat to staff and children and gain a first-hand impression of our school and the quality of educational provision.
Please enjoy looking around the website, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Best wishes,

Penny Hammett

Executive Headteacher
