A little about our school


Stokesay Primary School serves the community of Craven Arms and occupies two sites on the outskirts of the town, near the historic Stokesay Castle, from which it takes its name.    Adjacent to the school is the Secret Hills Discovery Centre, which is a geographical & geological resource, a library and tourist attraction, which was funded through the Millennium Commission.

The Victorian main school building was completely renovated and refurbished in the 1980’s with further improvements carried out in 2008/2009.  It has a purpose built hall with gymnastics equipment.

The school also has an ICT Suite and is connected by Broadband to the Internet with filtered access by children.  The main building accommodation also includes five classrooms, each with a shared practical area.  We have our own kitchen where good, locally sourced meals are prepared our pupils and staff and for another local primary school.   The school has two hard surfaced playgrounds and has the use of the town’s playing fields.

To accommodate the increasing number of children attending the school a purpose built annex was opened in 1994.  In 1996 this building was extended by the addition of two further classrooms. Accommodation in the Newton building comprises our Rainbow unit, which includes provision for Nursery children and KS1 with secure outside play area, four classrooms, two large practical areas, one of which is used as a hall, staff facilities and hard surfaced and grassed play areas.

There are two Parents Evenings held each year in the Autumn and Spring terms.  Parents receive an Annual Report at the end of the Summer term outlining their child’s progress over the year.  The education of your child is a partnership between the school and home.  The teaching staff are usually available to see parents before or at the end of the school day.  If you have a particular query, then please do not hesitate to contact us.


 If you would like to visit the school, whether you are new to the area or not, please contact the School Office and we will be pleased to arrange one for you.
