Welcome to Capel St Mary Church of England VC Primary School

We are a Good School

We Welcome Children from 3 to 11 years old

Come and visit our Nursery in our Early Years Unit

Capel St Mary is a highly inclusive, happy and thriving School. We are very proud of our children’s caring behaviour and attitudes. The respect and kindness they demonstrate daily to each other and everyone around them is wonderful to see. We are also very proud of the great progress they make with their learning and the enthusiastic way they approach their lessons,

We have up to 45 children in each year group from Foundation to Year 6 on roll. We also have 26 part-time places for children in our Nursery for 3 and 4 year olds.

We are a Church of England School and have strong and positive links with St Mary’s Church and other churches in the village. This includes visits to Church for special occasions and visitors from Church for assemblies.

Our attendance figures are high because we know our children enjoy coming to school. Our parents are supportive and very keen for their children to do well.

We use the letters of our School name CAPEL to give us our motto… our children come to school to Care, Achieve, Persevere, Enjoy and Learn!

‘A place to learn and achieve
