Learn about Nailsworth Primary School

Nestled in the quiet and beautifully tree lined streets of Nailsworth, Nailsworth Primary School caters for over 500 students. The site consists of stunning 1800s-character buildings that have been spectacularly maintained and refurbished to provide students and staff with comfortable and modern learning spaces. The grounds consist of large and plentiful grassed and asphalt playing areas, which are complimented by a magnificently shaded playground and nature play space.

As a result of the continuous and growing demand for enrolment at Nailsworth Primary School, the old Prospect library building that is owned by the Department for Education was returned to the school at the end of 2019. The school is eagerly awaiting the multi-million-dollar redevelopment of this building so that more specialised learning spaces and general accommodation can be provided.
