Headteacher’s Welcome

 

A warm welcome to Curzon C of E Combined School. Set in a stunning rural location but close to both Amersham and Wycombe, we are one of the best kept secrets in Buckinghamshire!

Curzon is a slightly smaller than average school with excellent pupil to staff ratios, each class with its own dedicated teaching assistant.  Our team know every pupil well and encourage and nurture each child’s talents. When entering our school, you will immediately feel the warmth, friendliness and passion that underpins all we do. We promote high academic standards and a strong work ethic alongside the Christian values of courage, kindness and respect. Behaviour is excellent and we are proud of our inclusive school where everyone feels safe and valued.

‘The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree for others to take shelter’ Matthew 13. V31-32

Our school vision is that every child flourishes and grows like the mustard seed to become a tree to protect and support others. Throughout the school we provide opportunities for our pupils to develop as confident and resilient learners who seek to help others and make a difference. As a result, Curzon pupils go onto many successes in the next stages of their educational journey.

While we are a Church school and live according to Christian values, we welcome all children and adults of all faiths or none.     

We are incredibly proud of our school and we warmly welcome visitors. Please do look at the admissions section on our website for our next open mornings.

I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

This is what our parents have fed back to us about the school:

“Curzon has a lovely atmosphere with happy children. The integration for my son into school was excellent, and his teacher is kind and approachable. The school is well run, with lots of activities going on all the time. Parents are kept well informed and up to date of what’s going on by a weekly newsletter. I have been delighted with this school. Many thanks to all the hardworking team.”|”The class sizes are perfect. We love the way the school handles children’s education, whether they are struggling or doing well, they are all given time and help. The manners of the children in the school are impeccable. We also like the way the school encourages all children to talk to one another no matter what year they are in. In dealing with the children, Curzon is great, and I’m really impressed with how my child has progressed.”|”I believe this is a caring and supportive school which instils good manners, independence and the opportunity to do well. There is a very good team of teaching staff and support staff with strong leadership by the Headteacher and Governors. There is an “open door” policy with all staff making themselves available. A well balanced, outstanding school which wants children to succeed and allows children to develop to their full potential.”|”Curzon school is a very warm and friendly school which caters for each individual child. The staff and Headteacher are very caring. I would sum the school up as an excellent and well rounded school.”|”I would strongly recommend Curzon School. You really feel that the teachers, pupils and parents all work as a team to enable your child to succeed. Your child is treated as an individual and certainly not as a number. The school does expect support from parents – i.e. homework, reading etc and as long as you are willing to support your child with this, the partnership will work.”|”My husband and I were immediately impressed by the qualities of the Headteacher, and have since been similarly impressed by the quality of the teaching and learning experienced by our children. We feel that the familial atmosphere contributes to making every child feel known and special, and that this is emphasised by the clear Christian teaching which they receive.”|“Having moved into the area and uprooted my children from another school, in the months that followed, I have seen them blossom, become more confident and focused. I am delighted with Curzon and I feel very confident in the school’s excellent leadership and teaching staffs’ abilities to teach my children both in an academic and pastoral sense. I am really proud to be part of the school community.”|“Curzon Combined School is THE most excellent environment for any child of any ability to learn and progress. The school ethos is fabulous and even the most boisterous children coming to the school have been handled brilliantly, and are now wonderfully engaged in the school curriculum along with their peers.”
