Welcome to Tolleshunt D’Arcy St. Nicholas C of E (VA) Primary School

I am delighted to welcome you to Tolleshunt D’Arcy’s school website and to introduce you to our school.

We are a friendly church school set in the heart of the community of Tolleshunt D’Arcy with views over the beautiful Essex countryside and Blackwater Estuary. The grounds are vast and offer good facilities both indoors and outdoors including ICT suite, library, adventure playground and forest area. We have close links with St. Nicholas Church and visit regularly as part of our Collective Worship programme.

The strong Governing Body supports the school to achieve its aims and vision. St. Nicholas Primary School works in partnership with other local schools. Our close links with Kelvedon St. Mary’s Academy provides the school with greater opportunities to further enhance learning for pupils and staff.

The Parents Association are very active in organising a variety of fun events. They raise large amounts of money to support the school and their efforts are very much appreciated by all.

If you have any questions or would like to visit us, please contact the school office and we would be pleased to help you.

Mrs Louise Eastbrook
