Welcome to Killigrew Primary and Nursery School

Killigrew Primary School and Nursery is a two form entry community school for 4-11 year olds in a lovely setting surrounded by woods and fields. The school and nursery have excellent facilities, take a look at our school prospectus to find out more.

We feel that we have achieved a ‘family’ atmosphere where even the shyest child feels at home. Children are encouraged to take on responsibilities from an early age and this leads to self-confidence and a responsible attitude to others and to the environment.

Mission Statement

We are committed to providing the best possible education for your child. At Killigrew we have an established reputation for providing high standards and expectations within a well ordered and caring environment. Every child matters to us and our aim is to encourage pupils to achieve their best and to lay the foundations on which their future learning is built.
