Combs - a school with a view.


At Combs Infant School we are conscious that our environment is a child’s first learning experience away from home.

Each child is helped to develop a love of learning, creativity, confidence and the resilience to move on to Primary School.

We create a small caring environment where every child can learn and flourish academically.

We care about our rural environment. Our village location allows us to let every child explore nature, the seasons and the natural world that surrounds our school.

We care about the wider environment too, our buildings – a mixture of old and new- are run to the highest environmental standards.

We are a school with a view.
