Welcome to Ditcheat School

Posted on by

Our school is hidden away in the quiet and pretty village of Ditcheat, which is between the small Somerset towns of Shepton Mallet, Castle Cary and Evercreech and close to the Bath and West showground.

Our school ethos is encapsulated in our vision statement “Learning Together to Achieve our Best.” For us this means working with the children to achieve the best we can in all aspects of the curriculum and school life. At the same time, we have lots of fun and ensure school is a really enjoyable experience for all of our children.



Our aims are as follows:

  • We aim for high quality learning experiences, recognising the need to provide for different learning styles
  • We aim to equip all members of our school community to support each other as learners
  • We aim for everyone to make progress and feel successful
  • We aim to create a happy, safe, caring environment where everyone feels valued
  • We aim to foster respect, tolerance and consideration

Our website will give you a flavour of our school but you will find far more detailed information in the school prospectus which can be viewed in the documents section of this site or by contacting the school so that we can send you a copy.

Prospective parents are always welcome to visit us. If you contact the office and speak to Miss Kate Knowles or Mrs Maddy Battye, we will arrange a mutually convenient time.
