We are proud of Barham Church of England primary School, which was founded by our churches over a hundred years ago. The church and school have strong links, and children leave us with a good impression of church life.

We are particularly proud that our school was judged to be 'Outstanding' in it's recent SIAMS inspection.

You can find out more about the school on their web site.

One of our special church/school events is the Creative Prayer Day, which we hold in church a couple of times per year. Each class comes to spend time in church during the day, and explore many different ways of reflecting, praying, thinking and understanding. One of the favorite visual aids is our plasma ball - see picture below!

There have been some amazing comments from children as to how this might help us to understand God.
