About the school

New Mills Primary School is a thriving and successful primary school right in the heart of the New Mills Community.3 We believe in a holistic approach to education, developing active and enquiring minds as well as active and healthy bodies. Play and recreation is as important as the formal curriculum in the development of young children and we ensure that a stimulating environment is provided within the school grounds to enhance the quality of children‘s play and social development.

The school is organised as seven single age classes from Foundation Stage to Year Six. Classes at the lower end of school have a maximum of thirty pupils in each class. At the top end of school some classes may be slightly larger than thirty. Some classes may be taught by more than one teacher and all classes have some support from our very able teaching assistants.

We look forward to meeting and working with you.
