Love one another ~ Love learning ~ Love nature


Welcome to Hugh Joicey CE Aided First School

At Hugh Joicey we believe that children learn best when they are happy, secure and confident. We are a thriving Church of England First School in the village of Ford and are very proud of our caring family atmosphere. We are lucky that we have one of the most beautiful school buildings in Northumberland as well as extensive grounds and our own forest school.

Outdoor learning is a key part of our vision for our children to flourish to their full potential in the rich environment they grow and learn in.

We are an experienced, professional, friendly and hard working staff with a dedicated Governing Body. Our PTA provides a huge amount of support for our school and we welcome families, friends and members of the local community to our special events.

However, it is the enthusiasm and excitement that we see in our pupils that makes Hugh Joicey such a special school to work and learn in.

I hope our website provides you with all the information you need, but we love showing visitors around our school, so please get in touch if you would like to see more of what we do.
