Horrabridge Primary and Nursery School

Discovering, Learning and Achieving Together


Horrabridge Primary & Nursery School is an 'Outstanding' school (Ofsted November 2011). It is situated within the village of Horrabridge, between Yelverton and Tavistock, on the western edge of Dartmoor.


Registration for our primary aged children begins at 8.45 am with the school day ending at 3.15 pm. This means that the children are in school for 6.5 hours per day and 32.5 hours per week.


Our Nursery sessions run for three hours each from 8.50 am until 11.50 am and from 11.50 am to 2.50 pm.


Our breakfast club runs daily from 7.30 am until the start of the school day.


Our after school club also runs daily until 6.00 pm-from 2.50 pm for Nursery children and from 3.15 pm for all primary aged children. 


Ours is a lovely, friendly school with fabulous facilities and a committed and caring staff. Our school benefits from eight modern, spacious classrooms ~1 x Nursery, 1 x Foundation, 1 x Year 1, 1 x Year 2, 1 x Year 3, 1 x Year 4, 1 x Year 5 & 1 x Year 6. We also have a networked ICT suite with 30 computers (in addition to portable chrome books and i pads), Cookery area, separate libraries for EYs/KS1 and KS2 and a large school hall/community sports hall. Our spacious outdoor environment includes large playground areas and playing equipment, a large, level playing field, enclosed astro turf pitch and a covered outdoor learning area. We also have an environmental garden area.


We strive to ensure that all our children have a happy, broad education that encourages them to enjoy and achieve. Our curriculum centres on learning within a thematic curriculum through which core Numeracy and Literacy skills are learned and applied. We aim to prepare our children as the global citizens of the future, where excellent ICT skills, the ability to speak a modern foreign language and the need to consider the sustainability of our environment will all be valued.


We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school that caters very effectively for all children's needs. We value the opportunity to provide learning that extends beyond the classroom and to this end organise a variety of educational visits/visitors (including a sailing week for our year 5 children and a residential week for our year six children). We also link closely with the local community and provide a broad range of extracurricular clubs, through which we encourage maximum participation, as well as the opportunity to develop skills with which to represent the school in a variety of competitions and performances.


We would always welcome the opportunity to conduct a tour of the school with prospective parents and carers and discuss in greater detail the opportunities that we provide.
