Northlew & Ashbury
Parochial Primary School

Northlew and Ashbury Primary School extends a warm welcome to you and your child. It is very much our hope that, in partnership with you, we can offer your child the very best foundation for their future life.  From 1st September 2015 the school is pleased to be part of the Dartmoor Federation which comprises of Okehampton College, Boasley Primary School, Bridestowe Primary School, Exbourne C of E Primary School and Lydford Primary School.  Further information on the Federation can be found at

As a small, rural primary school one of our strengths is that your child will be valued and cared for very much as an individual and that in this context will learn to value and respect others, both in the School and in the wider world.  Our website is intended to help you to know more about our School, which is a Voluntary Controlled Primary School with a Christian foundation. Within its pages we hope that the aims of our School are paramount – aims which endeavour to provide a happy, purposeful and wide-ranging balance of learning opportunities which support all aspects of your child's development.  We look forward to working with you to the benefit of your child.
