Milton Abbot School
Milton Abbot, PL19 0PS Tavistock
01822 870273

Milton Abbot School serves the villages of Milton Abbot and Chillaton. It also receives children from the smaller communities in our rural area. We are a popular school and our roll has risen considerably in recent years. It is our aim to serve the needs of all children in our local area. We have a clear admissions policy that gives priority to local children within our catchment area.

We are proud of our unique school building built in 1829 by the 6th Duke of Bedford, making it one of the first schools in the region. It is a Grade II listed building and retains many interesting architectural features. The schoolhouse has been incorporated into the school to create a spacious and varied learning environment with scope for a wide range of teaching approaches and activities.

Our first extension, housing a new classroom for the younger children, entrance lobby, cloakroom and toilets was opened in September 1994 after a long campaign by governors, staff and parents to improve facilities at the school. A second extension providing a spacious new classroom, cloakroom and new main entrance opened in September 2000.

The accommodation on the ground floor will consist of four main classrooms, a computer room, Library/Study room, a small teaching room and Staff room. Upstairs we have the Art room, a T.V./Music room and rooms for administration and storage of resources.

Outside the main building you will find the kiln room, sports stores, playground, enclosed courtyard, sports field, pond, environmental areas and wood in our spacious four and a half acres of grounds.

The school is well furnished and equipped but we aim for continual improvement. Our new car park and sports field was opened in September 1999 and we are working to create a variety of wildlife habitats, including a pond, within our new grounds. The Garden was completed in 2002 with outdoor stage and huddling areas. It is used for learning and leisure by adults and children. In December 2003, we became the third school in England to install a 'World Peace Garden Window', making us part of an international network for peace.

In July 2005 we completed a large Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) or all-weather sports pitch, which provides basketball, netball, 7 aside football, mini tennis and full size tennis courts . This September (2006) our new Reception/ Year One classroom was completed with its excellent outside play environments. And as a bonus we now have an indoor 'Hall' for dance, drama, mealtimes, assemblies and all sorts of gatherings throughout the year.
