Education and church links in Datchet

Information about the 2 Church Schools, Datchet St Mary's C of E Primary Academy (DSM), and Churchmead (Secondary)  and one PNEU School can be found here. 

St Mary's works closely with all 3, but  as the primary school was established in 1843 by the then incumbent it has a  particularly special relationship with DSM.  All three schools hold services in church, attend the RBL Remembrance Service etc: each school engages  in a unique way with St Mary's and work in partnership to  contribute regularly to the wider community.
