Miss Kathryn Day - Our Headteacher

Welcome to Combs Ford Primary School!

We are two-form entry primary school located in Combs Ford to the south of the market town of Stowmarket where the Rivers Gipping and Rattlesden meet. We are a warm and friendly school community, working closely with our families so that our children become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. We aim for a modern and world-class curriculum rooted in our local community that inspires and challenges all of our children and prepares them for the future. Our curriculum is both academic and practical – we use our wonderful school grounds and our wider environment to encourage learning beyond the classroom.

Please take a look around our website to give you an insight into life at our school.

If you are applying for a school place for September, or looking for a different school for your child, we welcome visitors. To book a tour, please contact the school by phone on 01449 613112 or by email at – Miss Palmer and Mrs McCarthy, our Office Staff, will be happy to help you.

We look forward to meeting you and your child soon.
