At Oare Primary School we aim to create a caring and happy environment for your child. To achieve this we provide a wide range of balanced learning opportunities for all children to help them grow into responsible and independent people. `

We believe we can achieve the best for children through co-operation between home and school, and we enjoy close contact with all our parents.  We take care to look after all aspects of your child's development, and look forward to sharing with parents in making this a happy and successful period in your child's life.

This website gives details about our County Controlled Church of England School.  However, it can only provide factual information rather than give you the feel of our school, so we welcome a visit from you so that you can experience the atmosphere and meet the children who can tell you more about our school.

How to find us

We are situated in Oare, just off the A345 Marlborough-Pewsey road towards Huish. Coming from Pewsey, travel through the residential area of Oare and look for the left-hand turn signposted to Huish/ From Marlborough, look for the right-hand turn to Huish shortly after entering Oare village. The Huish road is very narrow and has two sharp turns, and on a school day there are small children about, so please take care driving! There are a very limited number of parking spaces at the school, and once these are filled we ask all parents and visitors to park on the right-hand side of the road AFTER the drive immediately following the school. To turn your car, please drive down this road where there is a gravel area you may reverse.

About Us

Oare is a Voluntary Controlled school, meaning it is maintained by the Local Authority, with a Church foundation that appoints some of the governing body. The LA remains the admissions authority as with other state schools. Oare school is firmly centred around one thing - our children. The ethos of our school is to provide children with a safe, happy and fun environment to stimulate them and to create a desire for learning. We believe that the main purpose of education is to create well-rounded individuals able to deal with all aspects of the world, and to develop their skills to best serve them in life. This is reflected in the children's results which come as a product of this, rather than from an intensive and biased focus on one or two sets of exams. Visitors to our school are always impressed with the learning environment we provide, and how happy the children are within it.

To achieve this we have a fantastic group of staff, managed by a focussed Governing body, and supported by a very active PTA. We are currently growing against a country-wide trend of shrinking village schools, and are continually improving our grounds and facilities. In 2006 we added interactive whiteboards to all classrooms, funded by the PTA. Between July 2002 and March 2003, the buildings were extensively remodelled to create a hall, staff room, larger teaching space for the year 5/6 class and a new location for the library.  A two-class extension with disabled access was built for the other two classes to replace a very old and cramped teaching space.  At the same time a new infant playground was created. The whole project cost over £200,000 which was raised through Government Grants and the extensive support of Governors, parents and the local community.

We have a large catchment area as we merged with Wilcot School in 1969.  The area now covers Oare, Wilcot, Huish, Draycott, West and East Stowell, Little Abbotts, Sharcott Penning, Prospect, Sunnyhill Lane and West Wick.  We come under the auspices of the Wiltshire Education Authority based at County Hall, Trowbridge. At present there are around 70 children between the ages of 4 and 11 attending the school in four classes: Reception, Infant yrs 1/2, Lower Juniors 3/4 and Upper Juniors 5/6, these being subdivided or amalgamated for some activities.
