Welcome to the webpage for the Federation of

Cutcombe and Timberscombe Church of England First Schools!

Founded by Richard Ellsworth in 1714

Our Ethos

Our two small village schools share a headteacher and a governing body.  On the last inspection judged "Outstanding" and "Good with Outstanding Features" by OFSTED, our schools offer very individual personalised teaching with small class sizes and a friendly, nurturing family atmosphere. 
Ethos Statement of the Beacon Federation
The Federation aims to serve its communities by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.
It will offer an enhanced learning environment through increased interaction of children, staff and parents.
The sharing of resources and staff expertise will give a greater capacity for curriculum development and will promote and sustain high standards of teaching and learning.

Vision Statement:

We Love, Live and Learn Together

Website Materials

Please contact either school if you require paper-copies of any of the information on our website.
Please do contact us if you need copies of any of our published materials in an alternative format (for example: braille, audio or large-print) and we will make arrangements to provide this free of charge.
