Hello, Welcome to Borderbrook School.

Borderbrook AVC Primary is an exciting and innovative school that is committed to giving the children and families of the local area the very best opportunities. Our Church School is a unique place; it has an individual identity where a child-centred learning approach is combined with a rich range of learning and creative educational experiences. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.

We are proud of our standards of behaviour and work, and are totally committed to the full development of all children by offering them the very best start to their formal education; we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. Our class sizes are deliberately small to ensure the very best for your children.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum. It will grow over time as we add more information, but can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us. I would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school and answer any questions that you may have. If you would like to know more, please call 01948 770676 or use the Contact Us form and I will personally respond to you.


Take a look at our video below, where our children show you around and tell you more about what it is like to be a pupil in Borderbrook.

Our school is set in beautiful countryside in Tallarn Green, not far from Whitchurch and Malpas on the Welsh/English border. We have high standards and high expectations of all our children, providing every opportunity for each child to reach their full potential within small class sizes. We are fortunate to have great ICT resources, each child has their own iPad and Laptop and we believe strongly in preparing our children for our digital world. We are a nurturing school and support our children to build confidence and independence. Our outdoor resources reflect our location, offering forest school and plenty of fresh air and space to learn. The well-being of our children is paramount, and we know that happy children are the best kind!
