Welcome to Croft School

A place of excellence where children can achieve their full potential, set in a stunning location overlooking the Stroud Valleys.


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.”

We are continually overwhelmed by the amazing donations and charity support we receive at The Croft. Even with this Year being particularly difficult and challenging for everyone, we raised a fantastic £174.29 for Children in Need and a superb £266.64 for The Poppy Appeal.
We would like to extend a heartfelt and huge thank you to all our parents and carers.
