About Us



Our current Year 6 Pupils worked with a videographer to put together the following video to tell you all about the school from their perspective.  This is completely written by them and not scripted.  We hope you enjoy learning more about our school 


Buckden Church of England Primary Academy (Primary Academy Trust) is a vibrant and welcoming primary school. We pride ourselves on being a school that is at the heart of the local community, having strong links with our local parish church of St Mary’s and the local community of Buckden.

As a Church of England school we place an emphasis on the development of the whole child – both academically, spiritually, physically and mentally. The school has a strong Christian ethos, underpinned by a core set of aims and values developed by our wider community.

Our school was rated Outstanding in July 2015, and we are continually striving to improve and ‘do things better’. Over the last few of years, the school has been continuing on its journey to be the very best we can be and this was recognised in 2016 by our headteacher, Alison Anderson being designated a National Leader of Education and the school, a National Support School.

We continued to work tirelessly on the development of the school for the benefit of all stakeholders. In 2017 the school formed and set up A1 Teaching School Alliance. Our primary focus is and will always be to continue to raise standards, whilst also endeavouring to provide a broader, stimulating and more engaging curriculum for everyone in our school. To give each and every child the best possible start to education that they can have.

Choosing the right school for your child is a very important decision. Reading our school prospectus is just one part in making that decision. Should you feel, having read this, that there are some important unanswered questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.
