Jeremiah 29: 11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future


Luke 11:14

Forgive us our sins, as we forgive everyone who sins against us..


Isaiah 64: 8

Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.


Taddington and Priestcliffe School is situated in a beautiful village in the Peak District National Park. We have fantastic grounds including a playing field and extensive woodlands adjoining the countryside. Only 10 minutes  from Buxton, and within reach of Chesterfield and Sheffield, we enjoy an enviable location. 


The school is on the edge of Taddington village and is one of the highest schools in Derbyshire. There is a strong working village community which is supportive of the school.


Governors accept pupils who live within the Church Parish, mainly the village, then outlying hamlets and occasionally pupils from further afield. We are "small" in terms of the number of pupils but we have a big heart and big ambitions.

We are proud of our distinctly Christian Ethos. Our values underpin all that we do in school.

Isaiah 40: 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak… They will soar on wings like eagles



Matthew 7: 12

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.


Hebrews 12: 1

Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us

"Classrooms are industrious places where pupils listen to their teachers and get on with their work well and independently and in cooperation with their classmates." Ofsted 2018


We  have one clear vision:   'We Care  About Each Other'
based on the  parable from the Bible, the Good 
Shepherd,  we have a firm belief that nobody should be left behind and the needs of the few are just as important as the needs of the many now and in the future. This means...

...showing mutual respect in every way
