Our School

When you make your first visit to Sonning Church of England Primary School, you immediately get a sense that it is more than just a school. Our beautiful setting and warm welcome see to that, as does the palpable sense of purpose among every child and member of staff you meet.

The educational experience at Sonning is transformational. Based on our Christian vision of ‘Building Strong Foundations for the Years Ahead’, our broad, inclusive and ambitious curriculum offers opportunities for all, while outstanding facilities and an array of community partnerships provide an abundance of extra-curricular activities – we provide a truly holistic education.



The central pillars of Sonning are our core values: Love, Respect, Curiosity, Courage and Aspiration. This is our DNA and gives us direction, provides cohesion, and fosters a genuine sense of mission. We are a family and look after each other: the wellbeing of both pupils and staff is paramount. Every person matters.

Sonning is proud to be part of the Key's Academy Trust, a partnership of schools who are committed to unlocking the potential in every child. Collectively, we provide the very best educational experiences for our pupils and staff so that our family of academies are recognised as centres of academic and pastoral excellence at the heart of the communities they serve.

Our local community, including St Andrew’s church, Sonning village, PTA, alumni, partners, suppliers and friends, as well as our bespoke wrap-around care offer, makes the school unique and further enhance the opportunities we can provide, the support available and a sense of belonging for our children.

This is a school in which the little things matter and where children understand that great things can be achieved.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Mr Luke Henderson
