We are a 100 pupil school situated in the beautiful Blackdown Hills near Honiton, East Devon. Our Grade II listed building is situated in spacious grounds with a large playing field, play equipment, vegetable garden and even our own swimming pool! An extension was built onto the school in 2009 resulting in light and airy classrooms in addition to a large hall with views over the hills.
At Upottery we pride ourselves on our family feel. Due to our size, relationships within the school are very strong- staff know all of the children regardless of which class they are in and the older children enjoy playing and helping with the younger ones. Academic standards are high with a determination that all pupils should reach their potential. Coupled with this is a huge range of after-school clubs with something on nearly every afternoon of the week! Upon leaving Upottery, most of our Year 6 children move to Honiton Community College but we also send children to Colyton Grammar and King's School in Ottery St Mary.
The local community play a huge part in the school. The children deliver a service at St Mary's church for the local parishioners once a year and our extremely active PTFA organise Easter egg hunts around the village as well as discos, fairs and supply tea and cake at numerous school events. We also have strong links with Upottery pre-school who are located on our site and are the main source of intake in Reception.
I hope our website gives you a flavour of what Upottery can offer your child but there is no substitute for seeing us in action! Please contact the school office to make an appointment - I look forward to welcoming you.
