Welcome to our school. Ottery St Mary Primary School is the only primary school in the town and is wholly maintained by the County Education Authority. It is represented by a board of Governors.
The school was first opened in 1967 as an infant school and extended and enlarged in 1975 to a full primary school for the children who will be five during the term in which they start school to the time they are eleven. Children are admitted in September and January.
Pupils of our school are drawn from a traditional 'catchment' area which, in addition to the town of Ottery St Mary, encompasses the hamlets of Wiggaton, Alfington, Gosford, Taleford and Fairmile. For details of our classes, click HERE.
Our Headteacher is Mr Mark Gilronan
Thank you for showing an interest in Ottery St Mary Primary School. I hope the information on our website is useful and informative, but the best way to find out about us is to visit. It is an especially exciting time at Ottery St Mary Primary School as our new Key Stage 2 extension opened in September 2009 which contains 10 Classrooms, a library, an ICT Suite, a dance studio and lots more.
Please telephone for an appointment, and in this way you will be able to make an informed choice about your child's education. I look forward to meeting you and showing you around our brand new facilities.
