Welcome to you and your child from the children, staff and governors of The Federation of Newent Schools – Glebe Infants (4-7) and Picklenash Junior (7-11).

Our logo is an oak tree and acorn because from little acorns oak trees grow.


At Glebe and Picklenash we believe in developing the whole child both academically and socially. We nurture your children’s talents and develop their life skills. Our creative curriculum gives your child rich learning opportunities which are fun, interactive and challenging that will lead to a love for life-long learning.


We work with parents, the local community and partner organisations drawing on their wealth of skills, talents and resources to enrich learning. In return, the children make a positive contribution to the development of the local community.

We strongly believe in children, parents, governors and staff having collective ownership of the shared site of the 2 schools and its environment and all having a voice that is listened to.


Visits from prospective parents are always welcomed and can be arranged by ringing Glebe Infants on 01531 820700 or Picklenash Juniors on 01531 820589.
