Abington Vale Primary School


Abington Vale Primary School is a forward thinking primary school which has two sites approximately one mile apart.

Park Campus (the original Abington Vale site) was built in 1968, and has an attractive building surrounded by extensive grounds which provide a stimulating environment for both learning and play for our 270 pupils. Stirling Campus was opened in September 2013 in an innovative office block conversion, and provides a unique and exciting learning opportunity for 210 children. Its modern and dynamic design is based upon Scandinavian school principles with large collaborative spaces. Although both sites are very different in appearance, both share the same ethos, values and dedication to high standards and outcomes for children.

Our engaging and friendly school community work collaboratively to ensure that all children have the best opportunities to succeed. Staff work hard to ensure that children are challenged and supported to achieve highly and we benefit from a highly supportive parent community. Children's behaviour is outstanding and they enjoy learning. You are always welcome to visit and find out more about life at Abington Vale Primary School.
