Tarporley CE Primary School provides an education for currently around 280 children aged from 4 to 11 years, divided between 11 classes with the capacity to educate 315 children. Our school vision is for everyone to 'let their light shine'.
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, small group intervention rooms and our library. 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 2017 Cheshire West and Chester council purchased the neighbouring bungalow for the school to facilitate a building programme. The expansion was completed in 2018 with the addition of 4 classrooms, small group rooms, office spaces, additional playground space, a multi use games area, an extended hall and a library area.
