School Information

Tarporley CE Primary School provides an education for around 200 children aged from 4 to 11 years, divided between 7 classes.

Our School has provided education for the children of Tarporley and surrounding areas since 1849 when the original school opened in the ‘Sandstone Building’. During the subsequent years the school has witnessed many changes reflecting the education of the times and we have a school that successfully meets the challenges of the current educational climate, providing a quality education for all our children.

The school is situated on Park Road close to the centre of the village of Tarporley with views across to Beeston Castle and  the  Welsh  hills  beyond. Within  two  hundred  metres  of  the school is  a  health  centre  and  small  hospital. Many people  move  to  Tarporley  because  it  has  easy  access  to  the  national  motorway  network,  Crewe  station  and  the airports of Manchester and Liverpool, with the surrounding towns of Nantwich, Northwich, Crewe and Winsford all within half an hours drive as is the city of Chester.


The original school opened in 1849 in the sandstone building that now houses the hall, kitchen, staff room, offices and meeting  room.  In  1926  a  two-storey  building,  containing  two  classrooms  was  added  and  in  the  1960s  a  three-classroom block was added. This meant the school operated in three separate buildings. In 1992 a major remodelling project  saw  the  refurbishing  of  the sandstone  building,  demolition  of  the  three-classroom  block  and  five  new classrooms built, joining all parts of the building together under one roof. In 2002 a portable building was added to provide space for music lessons and small group teaching, this building now houses our before and after school care.

Over the years the external environment has been developed to provide additional teaching resources, seating, play and sporting areas. The area known as the Orchard contains a pond, fruit trees, seating, grassed and gravelled areas. There is also a wooded area to one end of the playing field. There is a small area for the use of the youngest children when they start school.

If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we shall provide this free of charge.
