Our School

This website will provide you with some information about our exciting primary Free School which opened its doors for the first time in September 2013 to full Reception and KS1 classes. Our school provides your children with an outstanding, unique, safe and happy learning environment.

Founded on Christian values with a focus on all types of music and singing permeating the school’s curriculum and ethos, our school is dedicated to developing your children academically, socially, musically and spiritually. The strong partnership between UCFS and the Trust means you can have every confidence that your children are in very safe hands and will be given every encouragement and support so they enjoy their school life and reach their full potential.

Specialising in music and voice, the University Church Free School offers an extended day where pupils will have up to six hours per week for music and vocal tuition. The curriculum supports high academic attainment and progress, featuring:

  • Musical and vocal development and their use as means for raising self-esteem and aspirations as well as supporting other curricular aims.
  • Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills, including Enterprise, Leadership and creative Applied Learning, as means of encouraging pupils’ enjoyment and engagement in their own learning within an integrated curriculum.
  • Reading, Numeracy and Literacy, with a strong base in phonics and world languages.
