About Frieth School

Frieth Church of England Combined School

Established in 1865 Frieth CEC School is a small, thriving village school. It is a voluntary aided (VA) Church of England school operating within Buckinghamshire Local Authority. 

In partnership with parents, the staff and governors work hard to provide the best possible education for the children in the school.  To do this we ensure we have staff who will inspire and encourage our children and who, in turn, need ongoing development and support. 

We provide an environment where pupils are encouraged to achieve their potential in all areas of academic, physical, social, personal, moral and spiritual development.   Every child is an individual and we pride ourselves on recognising the particular educational and developmental needs of each child.  

The vision and values of the school are rooted in Christian narrative.  The atmosphere of the school is one of care, courtesy and consideration for others: our pupils say that we are a fair school where everyone is respectful, kind and supportive.  Contributing to, and being part of, a community is important to us.

Aims of the School

 Through our teaching we aim to help pupils to:

  • Develop lively, inquiring minds and imagination, the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to various tasks and physical skills.
  • Develop self-confidence and self-discipline in their approach to learning and life.
  • Use language and numbers confidently and effectively.
  • Acquire understanding, knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to a fast changing world.
  • Develop personal moral values, particularly Christian values, and to have respect for, and tolerance of, other races, religions and ways of life.
  • Gain an understanding of the world in which they live and the interdependence between individuals, groups and nations.
  • Appreciate human achievements and aspirations.
