Our Church and History
We have very strong links with St Mary Magdalene Church and we pride ourselves on our warm and inclusive Christian learning community. We benefit greatly from regular visits to the church to celebrate key Christian festivals and to support learning in Religious Education.
Clergy visit school each week to lead our well-attended Family Worship with our school community. Both children and parents thoroughly enjoy these engaging and interactive worships where we reflect as a learning community about our spirituality, core values and our connection to God.

The School was founded over 200 years ago, when the Squire provided room in the Manor House for the education of the children of the village. In 1873, the Squire provided a School House and Hall, which were in full use for education until 1976, and are now used for community work. The Church provided the modern, well-equipped building, which is now used by the school. The Bishop of Kensington laid the foundation stone in 1969 and all the children have been accommodated in the new building since 1970.
As the church owns our school buildings (though not our furnishings) and the insurance of the buildings is their responsibility and is part of their maintenance costs. To help the Governors meet these charges a School Maintenance Fund exists. The local Church (St Mary Magdalene) contributes to this Fund but it is vital to the School that its help is supplemented by the financial support of the parents of the children at the School and other well-wishers.
In order to be able to meet the demands of maintaining the School at its present high standard, we ask that for every child attending the School an appropriate amount is contributed (the annual amount is £66.) Should you wish to pay this by monthly standing order (just £5.50 per month) details are available from the school office, alternatively this can be paid annually, each term, half-termly or weekly (cheques made payable to Littleton School Trustees.) If you require any advice on these points please contact the School Secretary, the Head Teacher or the Chair of Governors; Rev Tim Rose.
If you are able to contribute to the School Maintenance Fund, we thank you in advance. Both the School and the Church are extremely grateful for your commitment to supporting our buildings and the children.
