Choosing the right school for your child is an important, significant and exciting decision. We will support you in this process, recognising that you will be considering your options and making sure you are making the right decision for your child.
We believe that each child can only achieve their full potential if they are happy and secure in their school environment. We offer a caring, child-centred approach, ensuring that our curriculum and learning experiences enhance the children's learning journey preparing them for the wider world and their futures. By building good working relationships with the children and their respective families, we see the potential in every child and nurture its growth so that every child develops to their fullest capacity.
Our small classes, excellent academic record, rural setting and strong Christian ethos may be right for your child.
If you are wondering if Selling School is right for your child, the best way to find out is to come and visit us.

Ofsted Inspection Report November 2021
Ofsted visited in November 2021 and confirmed that we are a good school. The report is very positive. Here are just some of the things they said about our school....
Pupils enjoy coming to school. They feel that the school is a kind and friendly place....Children in early years quickly learn how teachers expect them to behave.
Leaders set ambitious expectations for pupils' progress in early reading and keep a close eye on how well pupils are developing their phonics understanding. Pupils develop a love of reading as they move through the year groups.
All parents who responded to Ofsted's online questionnaire, Parent View, agreed that their child does well at the school. One parent commented: 'Selling is a lovely supportive school and my children love it.'
The full report can be viewed here.

Exciting project beginning in January 2022
We are very excited to be beginning the Outdoor Play and Learning Project (OPAL) in January 2022. Through this project, the children's playtime provision will be further enhanced and support the children's physical development alongside building resilience, fostering social skills and ensuring the children return ready to learn having had lots of fun during playtime.
The following video shows how amazing we hope our playtimes will be in the very near future.
