2023-24 NURSERY & RECEPTION PLACES AVAILABLE - CONTACT US TO FIND OUT HOW YOUR CHILD CAN START HERE
Welcome to the website of Fir Ends School, a small(ish) school that is much bigger on the inside!
Our aim here is for everyone to have opportunities to 'Be the best YOU can be' and we offer a primary experience that is carefully balanced to promote academic and personal development that makes the most of our geographical location.
On any given day, children may be found wrestling with long division in the morning and baking apples over an open fire in the afternoon; learning about the life of Ancient Egyptian Pharoahs or canoeing across Talkin' Tarn; discussing the importance of honesty or receiving chocolate eggs from a giant Easter Bunny!
All the information you need about our school should be contained within these pages, but we appreciate that sometimes it can be hard to find exactly what you might be looking for.
We suggest that if you're looking for specific information you start with the parent information guide or the search bar and if they don't do the job, call us or send an email . If you're new to the area, or have children due to join nursery or reception, we recommend coming to visit us, we'll be happy to show you round -)
