Northlew & Ashbury Parochial Primary School is a C of E Voluntary Controlled Primary School, situated in the centre of Northlew village. We are approximately seven miles north west of Okehampton.
Northlew & Ashbury Primary School is a voluntary controlled Church of England school in the Diocese of Exeter. This is a small rural school with an intake of children from Northlew and outlying areas. We currently have a roll of 33 pupils. We take girls and boys aged from 5 - 11 years old. They are organised into two classes:-
Keystage 1, for Reception, Years 1 and 2
Keystage 2, for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6
In January 2004 major building took place to provide a new multi purpose hall and classroom. The project also incorporated a staff room; cloakroom and a new much needed toilet block, which has provided disabled facilities. The work has completely modernised the building and provided the school with a lot of extra space. This has greatly improved the learning environment for pupils and the working conditions for staff. More recently the playground has been extended to increase the hard surface area, giving us wonderful facilites for team sports such as netball.
