Colerne is a co-educational, Church of England, Voluntary Controlled primary school built in 1958 on the edge of the village. The site benefits from a glorious location with extensive grounds and sweeping views across the adjoining countryside.
There are at present ten classes. All classes are of mixed ability with a balance of ages and sexes.
The school has recently been inspected by OFSTED; the inspection went extremely well and the report was very positive. If you would like more details, please visit the OFSTED website
At Colerne we firmly believe in the concept of developing children’s learning power so that they become actively involved and begin to take charge of their learning. This new approach to teaching and learning is referred to as “Creativity”.
