This is what Ofsted inspectors say about Christ Church:

“ Parents are very positive about the time children spend in Nursery and in the Reception classes and have great confidence in the care their children receive ... The school’s commitment to keeping pupils safe is exemplary. The headteacher leads by example and all staff are highly vigilant ... The behaviour of pupils is good. The school is orderly and pupils are polite to adults and visitors ... Bullying is very rare and any concerns are quickly and effectively dealt with ... The most able pupils from all backgrounds make good progress ... Support programmes and progress for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities are good. ”   
Ofsted inspection report, June 2017

Who are we? Where are we? What makes us tick?

We are proud of our school and the community it serves. We trust this website gives you a flavour of who we are, what we do and why Christ Church C of E First School really is the friendliest, most nurturing, most exciting, most ambitious first school in Somerset.

Christ Church is a Somerset County Council co-educational day school and nursery for children aged two to nine. Situated in inspiring and spacious school grounds in the south of the market town of Frome, less than ten miles from Longleat Safari Park, Christ Church provides an idyllic environment for children’s early physical, intellectual, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

We believe a great school overflows with the sound of cheerful children playing and learning with their friends. Yes, academic standards are important and learning is at the heart of all that we do, and, like other schools, we want every girl and boy to achieve their academic potential. But, at Christ Church, we believe a first class education should value excellent character (being kind, friendly and honest) every bit as much as academic effort (hard work, progress and attainment). Equally importantly: we believe school should be fun.
