Looking for a school?

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to Pierrepont Gamston VA Primary School.

Our most recent Ofsted inspection report describes our school as feeling “like a big happy family where the ethos of ‘Aiming high and caring for all’ is evident. Pupils say they are happy and feel safe.”

“Parents and carers who expressed a view are overwhelmingly positive about the school. A typical comment was, ‘This is a very caring, organised and wonderful school.’"

On this page you will find out more about what Pierrepont Gamston has to offer for your child and why we believe it is a wonderful place to learn.

If you are looking for a school place for your child, either to start in reception in September or to join an older year group, we would love to show you around our school. We have an open evening in our Foundation (Reception) unit on 8th November from 4.00pm to 5.30pm, or alternatively contact our school office on 0115 9819292 to arrange a visit at another time.
