All Saints CE Primary School is a Church of England Aided Primary School situated one mile from Axminster.

The school is adjacent to All Saints Parish Church and overlooks the village of Smallridge from its position on high ground. The school is very much a community school and although the children come from a fairly wide area, they are encouraged to feel involved in village life.

It was built in 1856 and has seen many major changes. It has grown from a 2 class school of 14 children (1986) to 5 classes with approximately 118 children on roll today.

The school aims to create a happy and caring Christian atmosphere, where those who attend can feel secure and confident.

We have close links with other schools in both Dorset and Devon, and we are a feeder school to Axe Valley School but also have pupils that move onto Woodroofe and Colyton Grammar school.
