Down Ampney Primary School

Our facilities

Down Ampney C of E Primary School is located in the heart of Down Ampney village, attracting pupils from a wide catchment as well as serving the immediate area.

For a small village school Down Ampney C of E Primary is very well endowed with fabulous facilities that help create a wonderful learning environment for pupils. The amount of space that the children have available to learn and interact with each other through play is one of the best features of the school. Prospective parents/carers are very welcome to visit the school and have a look around – contact the school office to arrange a convenient time.

The main school building at the front of the school houses a newly refurbished school office and Head’s office and  a large classroom which is occupied by Giraffe Class (Yr3 -Y6).




An additional annex classroom which provides flexible space for small group work, extra tuition, and music lessons.

The Butterflies classroom (YR-Y2) is located in a separate building towards the back of the school which is  surrounded by a safe, outside play area situated at the  back of the infant building. The infants enjoy a friendly welcoming classroom space, perfect for the first years at school







Different areas in the classroom allow for separate group activities and whole-class learning.







Both Giraffe and Butterflies Classrooms are equipped with laptops and touch interactive screens.

The school also benefits from having a very large multi-functional school hall. It is used for Collective Worship, additional classroom space as well as being used for indoor PE and a dining room at lunchtimes
