It is with great sadness that I have to announce the death of Beth Hopkin. Beth died on Friday night (22/07/16) after a difficult battle against cancer.


Beth was the headteacher of Ditcheat School for 9 years (2002 – 20111). She will be remembered for the passion and commitment she had for the school and every child that attended. Beth was an inspiration and friend to those she worked with and will be greatly missed.


Welcome to Ditcheat Primary School. Our website features all our news and updates as well as giving visitors a real feel for our busy and successful school. Please feel free to browse our site to find out more about us!

 Our school is hidden away in the quiet and pretty village of Ditcheat, which is between the small Somerset towns of Shepton Mallet, Castle Cary and Evercreech and close to the Bath and West showground.

Our school ethos is encapsulated in our vision statement "Learning Together to Achieve our Best." For us this means working with the children to achieve the best we can in all aspects of the curriculum and school life. At the same time we have lots of fun and ensure school is a really enjoyable experience for all of our children.

Our aims are as follows:

~ We aim for high quality learning experiences, recognising the need to provide for different learning styles

~ We aim to equip all members of our school community to support each other as learners

~ We aim for everyone to make progress and feel successful

~ We aim to create a happy, safe, caring environment where everyone feels valued

~ We aim to foster respect, tolerance and consideration

Our website will give you a flavour of our school but you will find far more detailed information in the school prospectus which can be viewed in the documents section of this site or by contacting the school so that we can send you a copy.

Prospective parents are always welcome to visit us. If you contact the office we will arrange a mutually convenient time.
