Cuddington | Buckinghamshire

Welcome to Cuddington & Dinton Church of England School

We are a primary school spread across two village sites; the Infant site based here in Cuddington and the Junior site in our neighbouring village of Dinton.  We have some 180 pupils ranging between the ages of 4 and 11.

The school is privileged to enjoy strong links with supportive local communities and the church, relishing the history and traditions of our villages whilst moving our school and, most importantly, our pupils’ education forward. Being a Voluntary Aided Church of England school our Christian orientation and focus are essential to our mission; the school's Vision and Values are to be found here.

We welcome visits from prospective parents and extend a warm invitation to local residents to attend our events and services outlined in our calendar.

Please visit our main website at
where you will be able to access our calendar and read about current activities and news.

We are grateful to Veronica Stewart for the provision of photographs for the banner.

High Sheriff Visits School

The school was delighted to welcome Mrs Milly Soames DL, High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, (and resident of Cuddington!) on a special visit today.

She visited both Infant and Junior sites and was able to see the children in all of the classrooms and ask questions about their learning.

They also had the chance to ask her about her role and there is a full report of the visit in the March issue of Village Voice.

The photograph shows Milly receiving a bouquet of flowers from two childen on the Infant site.

School Harvest Thanksgiving 2016 

School Harvest Thanksgiving Service

Both Infant and Junior site children filled St Nicholas' Church this morning, 10th October, for a Harvest Thanksgiving Service. 

There was a wonderful array of gifts presented by the children (see picture) which would be sent to Aylesbury Vineyard for distribution to needy famlies and individuals.

School Helper and Parent Jo Goodson led the service and focused her message to the children on giving and sharing – particularly food and water.  She used the reference to water to introduce us all to the Toilet Twinning project that Nic Nacs have been involved in.  Look out in Village Voice for further information on this next month!

There was lots of enthusiastic singing of songs about food and giving!
