Background and History

Romiley Primary School is situated on the outskirts of Greater Manchester in the suburban area of Romiley. The school has served the community since 1867 and has operated on its current site since 1914.

Our school is a wonderful mix of both old and new which blend together superbly.  The ‘old’ building was built in 1914 with a £2,000,000 extension built in 2005.  The school has grown having 252 on roll in 1914 to now being a two form entry school with approximately 459 children on roll aged from 3 years to 11 years old.

The catchment area covers the whole of Romiley village making Romiley Primary a true community school. Strong and long established ties with the local community are a strength of the school.

We have a large staff base, each bringing with them a range of personal qualities and expertise that truly gives our children with the best possible care and education we can provide. Two members of the teaching staff have been recognised in two successive years as Teacher of the Year , North West and Highly Commended. We have a low turnover of staff – once here they do not seem to leave!

The school is also supported by the Governing Body and the P.T.A. known as FRPS – Friends of Romiley Primary School.  The Governing Body are fully committed to supporting and developing the philosophies and ethos of the school while FRPS are forever active in raising funds to enhance the teaching and learning within the lessons and the environment.

Visitors to our school regularly say they feel a warmth and a sense of being welcomed and valued as soon as they come through the door. Many parents who choose to send their children to our school cite the special but unquantifiable feel they get when they first cross the threshold.

We welcome visitors at any time – please contact the school office to make an appointment.
