Mr Tony Larner, Executive Head TeacherThe Federation of Newent Schools is a split site primary school comprising of Glebe Infants (Reception-Y2) and Picklenash Juniors (Y3-6). The schools work closely together to provide a quality education under the leadership and management of a shared Governing body and leadership team.


Both schools pride themselves on providing a caring and nurturing environment which is very much focussed on meeting individual needs. The Federation has a strong pastoral and special needs team that work closely with staff and parents to provide excellent support for all children.


Being the only Primary provider within the town of Newent we are proud of our strong relationship with the local community and we work hard to ensure that strong links are made with the local community organisations. Many of these links are able to provide our children with unique opportunities and experiences that add breadth and balance to our curriculum.


As staff we are passionate about developing a love for learning and working together to ensure everyone reaches their full potential. Our curriculum is carefully structured to inspire children and provide opportunities for them to discover and learn in fun and engaging ways. As well as focussing on the key academic areas in school we recognise the need to develop the whole child and as such look to provide a range of opportunities that prepare children for the next steps in the educational journey and life in general.


If you are looking for school places for next year’s reception or in any of the other primary year groups we would welcome you to visit Glebe Infant School & Picklenash Junior School. Please feel free to contact the school office on: 01531 820589 to arrange a tour of the school with the Head Teacher.
