Minsterley School is a ‘Community School’ founded by the Marques of Bath in 1843 and opened in 1845. For over 170 years the buildings and grounds have been developed to provide a homely and bright learning environment comprising 6 classrooms, 2 smaller teaching rooms, a hall and a library area. School meals are cooked in a recently refurbished kitchen.
A central courtyard provides a secure and stimulating play area for the Early Years children with a climbing frame, play house and large play equipment.
The 2 hard surface playgrounds have recently benefitted from new playground markings and picture boards on the walls, mainly funded by the school PTA.
The school field is enjoyed by the children during summer playtimes and is regularly used for P.E. and sport clubs. A large wooden shelter, raised gardens, a play road for scooters and karts and wooden climbing equipment make the field an exciting and stimulating place for the children to play.
Our Forest School area has been developed to provide all children with the opportunity to explore the natural world, make dens, cook on an open fire, make things from natural materials and generally enjoy being outdoors.
A community run nursery is housed in the cottage adjoining the school and shares many of the school’s facilities as well as enjoying its own exciting play area.
