St Merryn School caters for pupils aged 3 – 11yrs. We have approximately 148 pupils on roll. The school is housed in an 1876 listed building with a modern, well equipped hall which was opened by Rick Stein in 2004. It has stage lighting that is used for school performances and community events.
Year 3 and Year 4/5 are adjacent to each other and share access to practical areas, toilets and sinks. Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 5/6 are housed separately; year 5/6 being in the main building. Four of the five classes are mixed age classes. We have three extra teaching spaces and a new library. We have a state of the art kitchen, including a training kitchen for the pupils to work alongside our chef.
We have masses of outdoor space for the size of our school, including two large playgrounds, a garden area, which the children maintain, woodland area and orchard. Children have access to a wide range of resources during break times, led by our sports leaders.
Nearly half of the pupils have a leadership role within school ranging from music leaders to librarians, house captains, playground buddies and school council.
The school has access to computers, we currently have iPads and a set of chrome books. We have wireless internet access throughout the school and a computerised library system. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards and access to many software packages.
