School Information

Location and Accommodation

West Tytherley Primary School was founded in 1855 and was extended to add two new classrooms in 2007.  Being a church school it maintains close links with the local clergy and with the Diocese.  We aim to create and provide our children with a stable and caring environment in which to grow and develop.  We have close links with the local community and many of our children have parents and grandparents who were also pupils of our school.  The school has a strong PTA which organises events during the school year.  The pupils have special services in church and the village hall and two annual school productions all of which the parents and wider community are invited to attend.

The school has a wide, rural catchment area including West Tytherley, Buckholt and the neighbouring villages of West Dean and East Tytherley.  There is an LEA funded bus service for the children from East Tytherley and West Dean. 


Currently the school has 76 pupils on roll, distributed across four classrooms with mixed Year groups in each class.  The particular class mix can vary according to the numbers in each year.   We admit up to 15 children into the Reception class every year and the school prides itself on providing an inclusive environment.  The percentage of pupils identified as having special educational needs is 15% and those having Free School Meals is 11%. The pupils learn in a happy and calm environment with a well-established behaviour policy.

The pupils’ attitude to school is always very positive. The views of pupils are represented by the School Council who have been very pro-active in many initiatives, including appointing the Headteacher and new members of teaching staff, designing a sensory garden to enhance the curriculum and organising a number of fundraising activities.


In addition to the four classrooms, the school has a library, a food technology kitchen, a special needs room and a well-equipped I.C.T. suite.  All our classrooms have interactive whiteboards with visualisers, and our Early Years area extends into the outside courtyard to further enhance the learning and play for our infants. 

The children have lunch in the dining hall, where hot meals are prepared on-site every day.  There is a playing field, a playground, a school allotment and garden.  We also recently opened our outside learning zone,  "The Four Seasons Garden"  making excellent use of our beautiful wooded area and creating wildlife habitats, including ponds.

All our infant pupils are offered free fruit and milk at breaktime every day and all children exercise for 10 minutes before school starts every morning.  The school has been awarded Enhanced Healthy School Status. 

Breakfast Club and After School Care

We run a breakfast club from 8 a.m. and offer a wider range of after school clubs, four days a week until 4.15 p.m.

We also have an arrangement with Norman Court School who provide an after school care facility within West Tytherley.  They will collect your child at the end of the school day and transport them to Norman Court School, offering supervision, activities and refreshments until 6 p.m.









On Wednesday mornings in term time we run a parent and toddler group in the village hall opposite the school, from 9.15 - 11.00 a.m.           

Come along, meet some other parents and carers, have a coffee and watch your children play!
