Cutcombe and Timberscombe Church of England First Schools!

                              Founded by Richard Ellsworth in 1714​

Our Ethos

Our two small village schools share a headteacher and a governing body.  On the last inspection judged "Outstanding" and "Good with Outstanding Features" by OFSTED, our schools offer very individual personalised teaching with small class sizes and a friendly, nurturing family atmosphere. 

Vision Statement:

We Love, Live and Learn Together

​The Moorland Federation

  moorland federation logo.jpg
In September 2017 Cutcombe, Timberscombe, Dunster, Exford and Porlock First Schools joined together to form the Moorland Federation.  We now share one governing body for all five schools, please see our separate Moorland Federation Governors page.
Next years term dates are available below- inset days are in agreement with the Moorland federated schools.
