 On behalf of myself, the Governing Body, staff and children, I would like to welcome you to The Federation of Farnham and Rickling. We are really proud of our vibrant, happy and successful schools. 

We encourage you to visit to see us in action!

We are very proud of our two schools that make up the Federation. They are charming village schools situated in beautiful rural Essex, both with outstanding views of the countryside and both of which form the heart and soul of their respective villages.

Our Schools provide a caring, supportive environment for children to develop a love of learning and respect and understanding for others.


Each child is treated as an individual, with individual needs and abilities, and everyone is encouraged to try to achieve their best and to have high aspirations.

Our schools enable children to become self-confident and resourceful individuals, with a broad and varied skill set, in readiness for the next step of their schooling journey. 


The schools share the same vision, values and ethos, which are nurtured in our small school environment.

We hope our website provides you with a valuable insight into our schools and gives you all the information that you are looking for. If you require further details, please feel free to contact either school directly.

I am supported in my role as Headteacher by a dedicated staff and governing body. 

Please do get in touch if you would like to visit our schools.

Mrs Hannah Wheatcroft (BSc, PGCE)
