Welcome to Kingswear Primary School and thank you for your interest in our wonderful school.
Over the last eight years our school has grown from under 30 to 76, from two classes to four. We primarily serve the Parish of Kingswear including Hillhead but also welcome children from Brixham, Dartmouth and Torbay.
We are a small school and thats what makes us great! We work closely with our parents and community to make this a family school.
The last two Ofsted inspections have graded us Good in all areas and in Behaviour we have been graded Outstanding on both occasions.Obviously we are striving for Outstanding and I firmly believe we are on the road to achieving this. Our location is not the easiest to access and our playground is not very big but we dont let that bother us. We use our beautiful environment as much as possible. We have a fabulous school field with its own pavillion and a piece of farm land which we have converted into class gardens , and a camping area. We have a very strong outdoor philosophy.
Our attainment at both Key Stages is Good . Our results in 2012 were Good with our Reading attainment Outstanding. When our children leave at the end of Year six they are spoilt for choice. Brixham Community College, Dartmouth Academy and Churston Grammar School (75% 11+ success this year).
I am really proud to be Headteacher of Kingswear, of what we have achieved and of what we can achieve in the future. This is a very exciting place to be but dont take my word for it ! Come and visit and see for yourself. Our children would love to show you around.
Mark Oakshott, Headteacher
A huge thank you to everyone for supporting World Book day. The children all arrived in fantastic outfits and have raised lots of money. During the day various activities took place. Otters made a book all about the character they had chosen to dress up as. Orcas each made a page of a book in the style of Charlie Cook's favourite book. Sealions and Dolphins each made a bookmark to enter into a competition to try and win books for the school and then made books of their own that they will be giving to Otters class.
