About our school - Gisburn Road Community Primary School is a happy and friendly school. Our staff and governors work hard to ensure that our children enjoy school and make good progress. We have separate Nursery, Infant and Junior Departments with the advantage of spacious buildings and only one class per year-group.

Children who start full-time school in our Reception class enjoy a double-sized classroom. They share a separate Infant building with just the Year 1 and Year 2 children. Infant pupils also have their own separate playground so it's a really cosy and safe introduction to school.

We refer to our Infant Department as the "smallest school in town".


We take full advantage of our larger than average site to provide extra space and top quality resources:-

  • Four separate playgrounds for Nursery, Infants, Year 3 / Year 4 and Year 5 / Year 6
  • Two large halls for indoor PE and activities
  • A stage with lighting, sound and microphones for assemblies, concerts and productions.
  • A full-size Computer Suite with 30 children's computers, a teacher's computer and a touch-screen interactive whiteboard.
  • There is also a smaller suite of computers in our Community Suite plus an interactive whiteboard and a mini-suite of computers in each classroom.
  • A Media Suite/Studio where we prepare programmes for our own TV Channel.
  • A fantastic new sports facility - the MUGA [Multi Use Games Area], which the children describe as "awesome".

We would love to show prospective parents around our school - please feel free to contact us.
