We are really proud of the way our school works with other schools within the Crewkerne and Ilminster Schools Partnership to enable all children in the area to flourish and ensure the best possible education for children from 4-18. There are regular meetings between subject leaders and headteachers across all schools which focus on sharing and creating resources and working on strategies to strengthen learning outcomes for all our children. For example, recently the schools worked together with children across the area to produce materials to improve children’s understanding of how to keep safe when working online. The CISP has a clear progression plan each year to work towards strengthening learning outcomes in all our schools.


During non-COVID times,  the Year 4 children from the First Schools in Crewkerne and the surrounding villages have shared a wonderful residential trip to Kilve Court together. This annual event is thoroughly enjoyed by all the children and enables them to build relationships with children from other local schools before they move on to Middle School together.

The schools in the area are currently undergoing an Area Review led by the local authority. This is at the consultation stage with a proposal to move from a three tier to a two tier system of education. The proposal seeks to change St Bartholomew’s into a Primary School from 2022. All the information related to the review can be found here:

The consultation page explains how you can have your say on the proposed changes.
