Nunney First School was founded in 1896 for boys and girls aged 4 to 9. The original sturdy stone building, modernised and extended over the years, is complemented by two wooden classrooms. All are surrounded by spacious grounds, a large playing field as well as a tarmac playground, a tyre park and climbing frame and a polytunnel for the very popular Mucky Pups gardening scheme.
Pupils come from Nunney and the surrounding villages, hamlets and towns. The school has a loyal and supportive network of former pupils, going back several generations.
Nunney First School currently has two classes – Hedgehog Class for Reception and Year 1 and 2 pupils, and Otter Class for children in Years 3 and 4. Our average class size is 24 with one full time Teacher and at least one experienced Teaching Assistant per class. Our school day starts at 8.45am and finishes at 3.00pm.
Nunney Pre-School is in a separate building on the site and is managed independently. We share some activities and work together to make sure that children feel nurtured and secure when they move from the pre-school into Reception class at Nunney First School.
