The small school with big ambitions!

Our Vision

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13

The ethos of Shiplake CE Primary School is built upon mutual respect, good behaviour and the pursuit of high academic standards within a Christian and moral culture.

The School encourages the cooperation of each individual to realise their own potential across a broad range of skills, within a happy, motivated and friendly community.

Our four pillars of excellence


Whatever the subject- Maths, Science , the Arts or Sport we strive for excellence through the provision of a high calibre, rounded education.


Providing leadership to our wider community and fostering respect and a community spirit within the school.


Actively seeking and promoting innovation in our classrooms to promote best practice, inspire children and keep their love of learning alive.


We really believe in looking after our children and in giving them the best pastoral care. We live our Christian values and take their mental and spiritual health really seriously.
