About Us.


Flash is the highest village in Britain at 1518 feet. On a clear day the views from the school are breathtaking.


The school was originally sited in the building next to the inn. John Bourne of Newcastle established this school in 1760. However, in 1820 Sir George Crewe and Joseph Tunnicliffe Esq. of Macclesfield, established a new school for thirty scholars.

The present school was built in 1873 and extended in 1895 by Sir Vauncey Harpur Crewe. It was a national school and could hold 120 children, although the average attendance was 36.


Today, Flash Primary School is a Church of England, controlled, co-educational day school administered by Staffordshire County Council Education Committee. It caters for children between the ages of four and eleven.

The school is divided into two classrooms, which are comfortably furnished and very well resourced.

Outside there is a play area that includes a wooden climbing structure, with a safety surface and an activity area with sunken tyres arranged for imaginative play. Our school playing field, pond and wild life area are situated below the playground.


The village hall provides us with a large space for certain activities and is a venue for school productions and social events.  

'Pupils demonstrate a clear sense of personal responsibility and a considerate friendly attitude to others across the school.' Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools. June 2006.
