Welcome to Preshute School
We aim to provide memorable, pertinent learning experiences that are engaging and whet the appetite for further learning, which are enriching, purposeful and challenging helping to accelerate pupil progress and attainment.
Based on the values of love, compassion, kindness, openness and respect, our Christian principles underpin all that we do at Preshute Primary School. Our children are delightful and our community flourishes on the mutual respect we have for each other.
Please take some time to look at the myriad of activities and learning opportunities that our school offers.
