East Kennett - Kennet Valley C. of E. VA Primary School

By the late 1980s the numbers of pupils on roll at both East Kennett CE School and the neighbouring Overton cum Fyfield CE School in Lockeridge were falling and it was considered impossible to keep both schools open.  Consequently, in 1990 both schools federated, with the Infant school (Reception and Years 1 and 2) plus the Bluebell Nursery located at the Lockeridge site and the Junior school (Years 3 to 6) at East Kennett.  Both sites were managed by a single head teacher and governing body. At the time of the federation there were 68 children on roll.

In the course of the academic year 2010/11 extra classrooms and meeting rooms were built at the Lockeridge site and in July 2011 the long-held aim of bringing together both Infant and Junior schools on the same site was achieved, forming Kennet Valley Church of England VA School.  In 2015 there are 80 children on roll.
