Looking for a great school for your child?
Whether your child is due to start school, you have recently moved to the area, or are considering moving your child to a different school, we are happy to help. Give the school office a call on 01379 870497 and arrange to come have a look around!
We often hold open days or tours, especially for parents looking for their child's first school and our friendly office team will arrange for you to come and visit.
The school serves the town of Eye, the villages of Brome, Oakley, Denham, Redlingfield and part of Braiseworth. These villages comprise the catchment area for the school; however, we also welcome admissions from other areas.

"My daughter has had a brilliant start to school life at Eye. The reception classroom is play-based, nurturing and supportive. The teachers and teaching assistants are kind, encouraging and there are opportunities each day to speak with them."
"Our journey home each day is full of exciting stories about what she has done and who she has played with."
"My daughter has learnt so much about reading, writing and making friends in her first year at school."
"I just wanted to say thank you for this week. You have all worked amazingly hard to get the school up and running for the children. My children have always enjoyed school, and were looking forward to returning. They have absolutely loved being back at school, this week, working with their teachers and seeing their friends. They both feel so happy and so safe, and have come home buzzing about their day."
