All schools have a different personality, and you pick this up as soon as you step through the door. The personality of Great Missenden CE Combined School is:
- A Church School – where children of all faiths and no faith grow in spiritual awareness and experience the peace of quiet reflection.
- A High Achieving School – we provide "Challenge for All", expecting all children to make strong progress whatever their level of ability.
- An Inclusive School – we welcome children with obstacles to learning.
- A Food for Life School – we are crazy about growing, cooking and eating healthy food.
- An Extended School – offering Morning and After School Clubs from 8am to 6pm
- An Outstanding School – judged Outstanding in every category and sub-category at our last inspection in 2006, we have made continual improvements since then.
Please come and look around the school to see for yourself whether all the above statements are true!

Our recent Easter Card Competition inspired lots of children to once again demonstrate their individual artistic flare. With entries from across the school it proved a tough task to select one winner from each year group therefore we had some close runners-up. The winning children each received a chocolate Easter egg and certificate presented by Mrs Addis and myself during assembly last term. A BIG thank you once again to all that entered!
See the attached certificates.
The latest Art Competition had over 80 entries, which was amazing! The winners were announced at the last assembly of term, each winner was presented with a certificate and a £5.00 WHSmiths voucher. The winners were...
On Thursday 14th February, Year 2 visited Darvells' and Sons Family Bakers in Chesham. The children were taught how to bake bread by a master baker. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were all extremely proud of the loaves they had produced! Well done Year 2!

We received the following thank you email from George Rivas of the Rotary Club, Great Missenden following our participation in the Shoebox scheme:
May we in the Rotary Club of Great Missenden send you our heartfelt thanks for your tremendous support for the Shoe Box Scheme last Christmas. You and your children's support has meant a great deal to so many under-privileged children. We have just received from our depot in Preston the forwarded email. Your boxes went to Romania and the Ukraine.
Also, do look into the Face book site for even more delightful pictures.
From us all to everyone who helped in any way, big or small again, THANKYOU.
Pictures of their arrival can be viewed in our online gallery.

Year 3 visited Chesham Mosque on 10th December. We were shown around by Ibrahim, who explained the way in which local Muslims use the building and the practices of Islam. It was a very informative visit and the group visiting the mosque in the afternoon were fortunate enough to hear the muezzin chant the adhan, calling people to afternoon prayer.
