About the employer

St Margaret’s is a small rural village school set in the delightful village of Tintinhull. There has been a church school on the site since 1848. Over the years the building has had additional classrooms built to accommodate the expanding village. We now have 3 school classes and a Foundation Stage Unit. This means that children can join us from 2 years of age and enjoy a smooth transition to school life. The FSU works closely with Explorers, our reception class.
