The school is an academy, administered through the Diocese of Peterborough Educational Trust (PDET), and rated Good by Ofsted in Spetember 2021. We provide education for the children of Mears Ashby and Hardwick as well as families from further afield who are looking for a Church of England or small school environment for their child.

The original provision for the education of children in the village was created using provision from the will of Mrs Sarah Kinloch in 1790. The oldest part of the current school building originates from 1870 when the school, as we know it now, was founded as a Voluntary Aided (VA) school. The building (now with modern extensions to the rear) is situated in an attractive rural setting at the edge of Mears Ashby village, a short walk from All Saints' Church, with whom we have strong links. It has secure and extensive grounds, incorporating an environmental studies area, a Peace Garden, a playground with fixed outdoor play equipment and a playing field to the rear of the school.

We enjoy strong relationships with our village community, welcoming several residents to support the school on a voluntary basis regularly. Our parents are a pillar of support, fundraising and donating generous amounts to assist us in providing resources and a lovely environment for our children to enjoy. Their work is organised by our PTA, Friends of Mears Ashby School (FOMAS). Our local vicar, Revd Katrina Huchins, is a strong supporter of the school and we enjoy almost open access to the church and its grounds for worship and lessons. Our children regularly visit the village, surrounding farms and Sywell Country Park as part of our exciting curriculum. 

We are proud of our values-led curriculum, working together to inspire and nurture children to be the best they can be. Our holistic approach is encapsulated by the scripture we chose to represent our school vision: 

Jesus said, "I have come that you may have life, and have life in all it's fullness."   John 10:10
