Memorable Learning

 Welcome to the Ampertaine Primary School website. Whoever you are, we hope that you will enjoy your visit and find our pages interesting and useful.

Our small rural school has one hundred and twenty two 5-11 year-old girls and boys whose experiences are designed by 7 teachers, 5 classroom assistants and 1 administrative staff.

We welcome everyone to our school and do all in our power to ensure that children's time with us is safe, enjoyable and fruitful.

Parents, children, residents and business folk rely on us to provide the future drivers of our community... hopefully, your visit will give you some idea of how the  ambition, confidence, reliability, integrity and spirit of our youngsters are nurtured and guided.
