Welcome to our school


Countess Gytha Primary School is a thriving village school with a wonderful modern building situated in the beautiful village of Queen Camel.


Our ethos at Countess Gytha is to provide the best education for all our children, and instill a love of learning which we hope will last throughout their lives. We do this by setting the highest standards for teaching and learning, and ensuring that every child is cared for and valued. 


Our aim is for all our children to leave us as happy, confident and independent individuals with a positive outlook on life and the resilience to take on their next challenge.


We trust this website will give you a taste of our school, as well as providing up to date information for Parents/Carers, Pupils and our wider Community.


Please do enjoy browsing through our website, and if there is anything further we can help you with, contact our school office directly to ask for further information or arrange a visit to experience a true Countess Gytha welcome.
