Ambergate Primary School is a place of discovery. Our aim is for all children to achieve in all they do, believe in their talents and help create a learning community for all. We provide an excellent learning environment rooted in our core values:
We strive continually at the school to provide learning of the highest quality which is rooted in a rich curriculum, enabling pupils to experience a breadth of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
Ambergate Primary School enjoys the benefits of being a small village primary school, whilst being part of the Belper Cluster Collaboration. We work collaboratively with other schools in the group, sharing practice and resources, our school also prides itself on retaining its own autonomy.
Year on year the school has achieved high standards of attainment in English and maths. Children leave the school well above the national expectation for reading, writing, and maths.
We have qualified specialist teachers on site that teach high-quality PE, French, music, and cooking across the school. Our after-school activities also provide a vast range of sports experiences.
Our aim is to recognise and nurture each child's individual talents, we want pupils at Ambergate to have memorable lifelong learning experiences. Our school is a very special place, we have amazing teachers and support staff, a wonderful site, and as a result, pupils are engaged, enthusiastic and proud of their school.
