Admissions to our school

A very warm welcome to you and your child from everyone at Tavistock Primary & Nursery School.

We are a thriving and well situated school of approximately 400 children aged between 2 and 11 years old.

Our school boasts fantastic facilities with a purpose built reception building while maintaining a small school feel.  We provide a secure, stimulating environment which fosters high self-esteem and is a place where positive relationships can flourish.

Use the link to the left to have a virtual tour of the school and the facilities. Our website also contains lots of useful information and provides a glimpse in to some of the wonderful work we do.
If you would like to book a private tour of the school with our Headteacher Mrs Handel or Deputy Headteacher Mrs Collett, please contact our main office on 01822 616044.
