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, a climbing frame, a castle and a polytunnel for the very popular Mucky Pups gardening scheme.
Pupils come from the village of Nunney and its surrounding hamlets as well as from the nearby town of Frome. 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 Otter Class for children in Years 2, 3 and 4. Our average class size is 21 with one full time teacher and at least one experienced teaching assistant per class.
