C of E VC Primary School

A member of the Tas Valley Church Schools Federation

Welcome to Preston CE VC Primary School

Based in the village of Tasburgh, we are proud to be members of Tas Valley Church Schools Federation, and we enjoy close links with Saxlingham Nethergate CEVC Primary School. As a church school, we work closely with St. Mary’s Church, Tasburgh.

The current Preston CE VC Primary School was officially opened on 19th June 1981 by the Bishop of Norwich, the Right Reverend Maurice Wood. It was initially intended to be a First School. It was named Henry Preston First School after the rector who founded the first school for the children of Tasburgh in 1844.

In 1997, the school became a primary school and the name was shortened to Preston CE VC Primary School. The refurbished and extended school building was officially opened by HRH The Duchess of Gloucester on 13th March 2001.

Since September 2017, the school has worked in close partnership with Saxlingham Primary School and in January 2019, the two schools formally joined together to form the Tas Valley Federation. The two schools share a governing body, an Executive headteacher, a SENDCO, and a number of staff work across both schools to achieve the best outcomes for all children in the Federation.

In September 2022, Preston CE VC Primary School has 127 children on roll, aged from 4-11 years and is organised into five class groups. 

If you would like more information, then please get in touch via the school office!  We’d be delighted to answer your questions and to give you a tour of the school.  Click to download a copy of the School Brochure.
