About our school



Ashbourne, Derbyshire


Built in 1854 and set at the southern tip of the Peak District, just in Staffordshire, Ilam School offers a very special combination of all the benefits of a small village school, together with the advantages that a developing educational system of today can offer through the National Curriculum, set within the school's own broad and balanced curriculum.

Ilam School is a focal point of the village and fosters a caring, family atmosphere, where each individual child is valued and appreciated. There is an emphasis on Christian teaching and moral standards, which encourages good behaviour, self-discipline and respect for each other.

The pastoral care of the children is of a very high standard as staff and children get to know each other very easily.

The rapid growth of the school in recent years has meant the introduction of an admissions policy which admits up to 10 children per year.

Academic standards are high and llam children are noted as diligent, enthusiastic students at Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Ashbourne, to where most of them transfer at the age of 11 years. Children are also offered places at Churnet Valley Middle School in Leek.

The school now has eight computers and is generally well resourced, with specialist scientific and technology equipment available from a nearby resource centre in a neighbouring school.

Ilam School offers abroad, balanced and relevant curriculum with an emphasis on the enjoyment of learning.

There are opportunities to join with larger numbers of children through the cluster in arrangements, when we can meet with other schools to function in peer groups.

Governors, parents and staff work in close co-operation to ensure that the standards and ethos of llam School continue to develop and grow, and we greatly appreciate the support so willingly given by parents and friends of the school. In particular, the school receives tremendous support from the Ilam School Association in respect of equipment, visits and general encouragement.
