Wilcombe Primary School and Nursery Unit
Lazenby Road, Wilcombe, EX16 4AL, UK Tiverton
+44 (0)1884 253025


We are a Primary School with pupils 3 to 11 years of age. We are situated in Tiverton, mid-Devon.

At present we have approximately 95 pupils full-time and 15 part-time nursery pupils. Although we are a small primary school in terms of pupil numbers, we are fortunate in having a large school site and spacious classrooms.


At Wilcombe Primary School we work hard to make our school a warm and friendly place to be. We welcome visits from prospective parents. We admit children to our nursery when they have reached their third birthday. Children with their fifth birthdays between the 1st of September and the 28th February are admitted to Reception in September. Children born between the 1st March and 31st of August are admitted in January. Children new to the area will be admitted as soon as possible.


Wilcombe Primary is a school that holds the development of the ‘whole child’ as a fundamental belief. At the very heart of our school is a philosophy of mutual care and respect, for ourselves, each other and the environment.

We provide opportunities for children to develop intellectually, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our aim is to give children the skills, confidence and knowledge to become healthy, caring citizens, who are prepared for the challenges beyond Wilcombe Primary School.

We are committed to maintaining the very highest expectations for our children, ensuring that each and every child achieves their potential.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that is accessible to all our learners taking account of children’s specific needs. Our children’s educational development is set on the solid beginning offered through the excellent integrated practice of our Foundation Unit.


National Curriculum coverage is rigorous, as required by the Education Reform Act (1998). We also believe it should be challenging and fun. We are committed to a topic based learning approach in which, where appropriate, subjects are linked. This helps the children to make connections in their own learning. Each topic starts with an experience. This may be an educational visit, a special visitor or event or a collection of artefacts. In this way, the children gain first hand experience which supports their learning. Some subject areas lend themselves well to topic work but others do not. These are taught discreetly or with a certain degree of appropriate overlap.


Thanks to the efforts and commitment of the teaching staff, a range of activities takes place during the lunch hour and after school. These activities presently include football, rugby, netball, hockey, athletics, keep-fit, drama, dance, environment, handicraft, chess, music, choir art and French . Parents are notified in advance of these activities if they take place after school hours and a consent form will be sent for your signature. Details of clubs currently on offer can be located in the weekly newsletter.
