The Swallowtail Federation of Church schools is currently having a new website created.

During the interim you may be unable to access up to date documents on this web page.

These can be made available by contacting the schools office on office@catfield.norfolk.sch.uk, office@hickling.norfolk.sch.uk or office@sutton.norfolk.sch.uk.


Welcome to our website and thank you for visiting us!



We are a family of three small schools situated in the heart of the Broads. Each of our schools has a wonderful family feel where the children are nurtured by dedicated staff.  The individual attention they receive enables our children to become confident and capable learners. All our schools have an Ofsted grading of 'Good'.


With friendship, trust and kindness we fly!
'Love your neighbour as yourself,' Mark 12:30-31

We welcome all people and encourage everyone to meet their full potential – to love each other, love to learn and learn to live in all its fullness. We love our neighbours – in our school, our federation, the local community, nationally and globally, as Jesus told us to do so.







Our schools are in extensive grounds and we take full advantage of this with regular outside learning opportunities. Please click on each of the links above to find out more, or even better, come and visit us!
