Key information about our school

Nestled in a beautiful rural setting, our small class sizes and outstanding results – Eversholt gives your child the perfect start to their school life.

Our legal requirements and expectation is to deliver a school week consisting of 32.5 hours. School is open from 8:45am to 3.20pm.
We deliver 380 sessions or 190 days during any school year to educate pupils and operate two sessions on every school day divided by an hour lunch break in the middle of the day. Five Inset days (teacher training days) are spread throughout the year.

We offer places to children aged 4–9 within the villages of Eversholt, Milton Bryan, Steppingley. We also encourage families from outside our catchment to apply for places.

Founded in 1850 by the subscription of local people, our school has a long history of providing education to children from local communities.

We combine this strong sense of community history with a modern educational approach which recognises that each child is unique, with individual needs for educational support or intellectual challenge. We create a buzz of excitement from pushing boundaries, finding solutions and solving problems.

By doing this, we will have successfully completed the first step in our children’s incredible journey through life and given them strong foundations on which to build the responsible, compassionate and sensible human beings they will become.

Consistent with our aims, we challenge ourselves to constantly innovate and improve, always providing an outstanding education for our children.

We set high standards for all at our school and our latest Ofsted report, November 2023 rated us as "Good" in all areas.

We regularly achieve 100% in the standardised phonics check. This places our results in the top 3% nationwide for all primaries.
