Greetings from the family of Franche!

We are a very popular community primary school in Kidderminster. We provide an outstanding start to school life for our youngest Tots & Nursery children and a creative and inspiring curriculum for Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils.

Our fantastic facilities include our own swimming pool, playing fields and forest school.

We also offer excellent wraparound care for children from 3 months to 14 years, open 7am until 6pm, 50 weeks a year, including a breakfast club, after school care and holiday club. We also offer family support and services for children aged 0-5 at Chestnuts@Franche, our community setting within the school site.
