Head's Welcome

St. Paul’s is an inclusive and vibrant Church of England Junior School right in the heart of Shepton Mallet in Somerset.

Children and teachers have high expectations of what they can achieve here. Our school is safe, organised, aspirational, inclusive, spiritually nurturing, civilising, thought-provoking and above all happy. It is within this ethos that the children learn and thrive.

Our inspiring and relevant curriculum encourages independent learning skills which prepare the children for life in the 21st century.

As a Church of England school our purpose is to provide a broad, rich and exciting curriculum which strives to achieve excellence within a Christian context. The children develop an understanding and knowledge of Christianity and an awareness of and respect for other faiths.

Our children enjoy rich and engaging learning experiences, which promote ownership of learning and lead to high standards of achievement.  Our children are at the heart of all we do here at St Paul’s. Their successes are a credit to themselves, our staff, our governors and our parents and carers.

I am honoured to have the opportunity as Head to work with such a happy and enthusiastic learning community. 

Discover more about how our children enjoy their learning and their time at St Paul’s CofE VC Junior School through our website, twitter or arrange a visit through our school office. Tours for prospective children and their parents can be arranged easily by Tracey Roberts (Business Manager), at any time of the year. Visitors are always welcome.

Best wishes

Chris Partridge (Headteacher)
