Spurcroft School continues to grow and serve the needs of the expanding Thatcham community. Our new £2.5million build is now open and offering the very best facilities to our pupils.

The school ethos is “Every child, every opportunity” and this is an approach we apply to everything we do. The learning environment is designed to give children a range of experiences to make sense of the world in which they live.

Topic based learning involves immersing children in a wealth of practical experiences. Each term children are given opportunities to ask questions and develop links across the curriculum. Learning in this way encourages children to develop a greater understanding and apply their learning in a creative and purposeful ways.

The school site provides a rich resource base for learning with some engaging external areas which include an amphitheatre and multiple sports pitches. We have a full wireless network and access to sets of laptops, iPads and desktops which support learning across the curriculum.

The music room has a range of instruments used in lessons and we have a specialist teacher who delivers this. Music tuition in a range of instruments is available and actively encouraged. We also have a specialist PE HLTA who leads outside games and runs a huge number of competitive and non-competitive clubs for children, and a specialist Art HLTA based in a specially set up art room. 

Our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provides an excellent start to school for 3, 4 and 5 year olds. Strong links between home and school are really embedded at this stage and built on as families continue through the school.
