Welcome To Cornwood Church of England Primary School.


A very warm welcome to our school’s website

Our small school was established in 1857 on the edge of Dartmoor, near Ivybridge  We teach children through the full primary age phase, from 5-11 and ‘Rookies Pre-School’ is now on site in their new building. The school plays an important part of village life and takes part in many community events.

The school is part of the Moorsway Federation which is made up of three primary schools. We have one governing body and one Executive Headteacher. By being part of a Federation it allows the children to have wider experiences and work alongside other children.

Please use our website to find out more about us or contact the school directly. Contact details can be found through the contact button on this site.
