Admission Information

Choosing a school can be a lengthy and tricky process and often we rely on the advice of friends, family and parents. We are very lucky to have a supportive school community at Oughtrington Primary. Here are a few quotes from parents who have made Oughtrington their school of choice:

‘Oughtrington is an excellent school. Our child has come on leaps and bounds.’ 

‘I am always impressed with everything the school offers. In my opinion it has only got better each year. Some amazing changes have taken place such as the introduction of Opal Play. Keep going Team Oughty,  always improving, always amazing.’

‘We are really pleased with my child's teachers this year. They have gone above and beyond in listening to my child, myself and putting things in place to help my child feel comfortable in school. We really value everything they have done.’

‘My child is very happy at Oughtrington, they have a great set of friends and supportive teachers.’

‘Oughty Owls is fabulous. It’s a brilliant wrap around care resource. My child enjoys breakfast club and after school club.’

‘I feel teachers know my child and what they need to work on. The school is very good at communicating information through dojo and the newsletters and guiding us to the website for a more detailed overview of the whole year's work. I am very happy with the school and how my children are doing.’

‘We regularly get updates about what the children are learning and we are kept informed about how our child is performing. We are confident that teachers know our child really well and how to get the best for them.’


Most importantly, our pupils speak very highly of how they feel about school. Here is what they have to say about life at Oughtrington Primary School:
