The School Environment

County Bridge is a Local Authority maintained primary school in the borough of Walsall. Financial responsibility for the running of the school rests with the Governors and the Local Education Authority, which comes under the auspices of Walsall Council

The school provides education for up to 210 children between the ages of 4 and 11, with nursery provision for up to 39 three and four year olds.

The school celebrates its links with the community. Reverend Sharon Hough leads regular acts of worship in school, and we hold special services, such as at Harvest, Christmas and Easter in school with regular school and class acts of worship to which parents are invited. We also have good links with our local Sikh community and are constantly looking for opportunities to link with the local community
