Open Days 12th- 17th October

We’re taking bookings for half an hour slots for one family at a time to take a tour of school, meet the senior leadership team and get a feel for our lovely school. We want to still be able to offer an Open Day-type option and ask you to join us following social distancing precautions such as wearing a face mask inside our building.


To accommodate more people, we are therefore opening up tour slots across the week commencing 12th October 2020. Please get in touch (the sooner the better) and we will organise something with you.

An Open Day is a great way to see the School in action and get a feel for what life is like at Primley Wood Primary. Here’s why we think you should choose us:

  • Ofsted rated ‘Good’ – December 2019
  • Happy well-behaved children who are eager to come to school and learn
  • Small class sizes meaning more time on individual learners
  • Key Stage 1 results consistently higher than national average

Saturday 3rd October

Socially distanced event by appointment only.
