The Croft School Virtual Tour




Our school is based at the heart of the thriving village community of Painswick, ‘the Queen of the Cotswolds’. We currently have 139 children, taught in six classes. We are fortunate to have extensive grounds including two playgrounds - our Infant Playground has had some fantastic new equipment fitted over the Summer, and the Junior playground has had a new trim trail installed. We also have climbing walls, sports pitches, outdoor seating and a superb vegetable patch all set in a stunning location with far-reaching views across the Stroud Valleys. 

“Pupils make good progress to reach above average standards in English and mathematics by the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.”
