About our school

Ottery Learning Community

We are part of the Ottery Local Learning Community which includes five local primary schools:

Feniton Church of England Primary School
Payhembury Church of England Primary School
Tipton St John Church of England Primary School
Ottery St Mary Primary School
West Hill Primary School

and our local secondary school
The King’s School

We meet regularly as a learning community and events are organised during the school year to allow the children to benefit from collaborative projects. These projects allow children throughout the school to meet children from other schools and take part in activities alongside them.

Special emphasis is given to children in Year 6 in the lead up to their transition to secondary school. In July each year, the Year 6 children spend a whole week at The King’s School while their children are engaged on projects and trips throughout Devon, the UK and Europe. It is called Project Week and gives the children a chance to get used to their new school and make new friends before the summer holidays.
