A welcome message from our Headteacher

Welcome to Brightwell-cum-Sotwell Primary School. We are a thriving, vibrant and friendly school situated in the heart of the village. The 100 children who come to Brightwell enjoy learning in a beautiful school surrounded by green spaces.

As a parent myself I know the importance of finding the best school for your child which offers exceptional learning and a close working partnership with families. I believe there is nothing better than a personal visit to see all this yourself.

We look forward to seeing you soon
