Forest CE


We are four small, vibrant, forward thinking village rural primary schools based in the beautiful countryside surrounding the market town of Towcester. The four schools Whittlebury CE Primary School - Tiffield VA Primary School -Stoke Bruerne CE Primary School federated in 2012 and were the first federation of three schools in Northamptonshire. This union has enabled us to pool our strengths and experiences in the classroom, alongside leadership and governance to create a richer and quality learning experience for all our children. This model that we have created for leadership of small schools has been replicated many times within the county. All schools where judged Good by Ofsted in 2013 with outstanding behaviour. Gayton CE Primary School has recently joined the federation and is an Outstanding school judged by Ofsted. We welcome them to the federation family.  

Our Federation


  • @MCurrell42 great interview on BBC!

  • Parents and caregivers Today we're diving back into #BarModelling Bar models help children visualise maths problems and break down complex word problems without going straight to abstract algebra. The amazing Dr Yeap Ban Har is here to explain #StayHomeLearnMaths

  • @Headfederation Thank you so much to Mrs Fulford and Mrs Boulton for setting fantastic work for our children which is making it much easier to continue working whilst supervising the school work. Love to all at the federation.
