Stretton Handley Primary School is a smaller than average village school, situated on the edge of the Peak district in Derbyshire, close to Ogston Reservoir. We cater for children from 4 to 11 years of age, organised into three small classes.
We have three classrooms and a central, well-equipped hall. We also have hard-court playgrounds and extensive grassed playing fields. Our ‘Learning Garden’ includes a bird hide overlooking a woodland area and a pond, bird boxes, a weather station and an outdoor classroom surrounded by a sensory garden.
The school, which is set in rural surroundings, has developed a local history/nature walk, “The Woolley Moor Trail“. This walk is enjoyed by many visitors to the area and an online version of the trail can be viewed on this web site.
‘Your results show that 100% of your pupils gained level 4B or above in reading and mathematics and level 4 or above in writing. This makes you one of only 149 schools in the country to achieve this level of attainment.’
