Welcome to Ashwater Primary School

We are a very small village school set in the heart of agricultural Devon. We provide a truly nurturing, family environment for our children.

An Ashwater education gives children the best of everything they would receive in a larger school as we want our children to grow up to be global citizens whilst enjoying the benefits of idyllic village school life.

“Ashwater Foundation Stage Unit has helped develop my two boys into curious, resilient learners. They have so many opportunities for exploring the wider curriculum – such as Wild Tribe and Dance lessons. The whole staff team are caring and encouraging. I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice of setting.” – Becky

“Ashwater pre-school is a really friendly place for little people to relax and most importantly, learn through having fun.” – Sarah

“Lovely little country school that my little girl started last year. She was welcomed by all years, not just the pre-school children. She settled in very quickly, running into the school and leaving me in the playground. She made friends easily and her academic learning is coming on leaps and bounds.” – Alex
