Our School History
Denbury Primary School is a small village school in the heart of the country just 3 miles from the market town of Newton Abbot. The original school was built in 1875 and although extended three times since, it still retains its village school ethos. The school is large enough to offer a broad and balanced curriculum whilst being small enough for everyone to be known.
Our school is always evolving and improving: parents, governors, staff and children share in our vision for the future. We have an excellent reputation and we are justifiably proud of what we have achieved here. We hope that this is apparent when you visit our school, or when you talk to our children and their parents. We hope that you will soon feel a part of our community.
