Welcome to Padbury Church of England School


A warm welcome to Padbury Church of England School website. We hope you find information here that encourages you to pick up the phone and arrange a time to come in and find out more. Our school serves the villages of Padbury, Adstock and Addington, but if you are looking for a caring village school then come and talk to us, wherever you live.


At Padbury, our vision drives everything we do. That is:


‘Our purpose is to foster a Love of Learning within a nurturing Christian community in a way that enables every child to be the best they can be and to flourish in an ever-changing world.’


Put simply we want pupils to:

  • Love learning.
  • Care for themselves and others within their community in a way they would wish to be treated themselves.
  • Be the best they can be.
  • Flourish and grow in every possible way so they are prepared for and able to tackle whatever might come their way once they leave us.


A tall task, but we can do this! As a Christian school, we use the bible verse of The Branches and the Vine (John 15:5) to guide us and underpin everything we do. This ensures that our growth and development in every aspect of life is encouraged, nurtured and valued. While we are a Church school and live according to Christian values, we welcome all children and adults to our school of all faiths or none.     


I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
