Cubert School

Our School

 Here is a little information about the history of Cubert School and our school site:

Cubert School is a village Community Primary School for girls and boys aged 4 to 11, run by the local authority. The School is set in large, open grounds and have just under 200 pupils on roll. 

Our children mainly come from the local villages including Cubert, Crantock, Holywell Bay and the nearby town of Newquay.

The original building dates from 1895 and has two classrooms; Year 2 and Year 3. The main building, including Year 4 and Year 5,  was opened in l974. (You can see these classrooms on our virtual tour of the school).

Over the last few years, we have been extremely lucky to have had a purpose-built Early Years/Year 1 classroom & outdoor environment along with a Year 6 classroom and studio facility built. We have an outdoor area that EYFS and Y1 children share to promote a play-based, practical curriculum in the first few years of schooling. The EYFS children also have access to a forest area to continue the outdoor learning that many of our children have accessed at nursery/pre-school. 

In 2020, we had a new office area designed. We also now have a permanent Nurture facility with garden, for any children to access who need extra support and time out of class for whatever reason. 

We currently have some very exciting plans to refurbish the school library and are working closely with the PTFA to make this happen. 

We have a tarmac surface for recreation purposes and a spacious grassed area. There is a large playing field and an all weather multi-purpose hard court. These extensive grounds provide the children with invaluable opportunities, not only for sporting activities, but also to study aspects of plant and animal life. 


Cubert School has strong community links.  During out of school hours, the tennis court is available for hire.   Evening Classes are often held at the school on a regular basis.  We have regular visits from the School Nurse, the local clergy, the community Police Officer, representatives from the local Parish Council, as well as key figures from the local community who kindly volunteer their time to support the school in many different ways. 

We have very strong links with other local primary and secondary schools which create opportunities for our children to access a wider range of learning and expertise.
