Welcome to Alston Primary School

Co-located with Samuel King’s School on the Church Road site in Alston, the School has strong community links and is very much a central part of life in the area. We have strong links to the local Church and various other community groups and are privileged to have a team of local volunteers who also come in and work with our children. Our active PTA organises any number of activities and events for the children – both in and out of school.

We have four classes.  Park Fell hosts our 14 Reception aged children.  The larger Cross Fell class has all of Year 1 and 2 in it along with a couple of Year 3 children.  The rest of Year 3 are with Year 4 and some of the Year 5 children in the Middle Fell Class.  Flinty Fell, our oldest class, contains the rest of the Year 5 cohort along with the Year 6 children.  

The site is a busy one with the Alston Pre School located in the building as well as Children’s Centre activities overseen by Barnardos. We believe that the presence of these two organisations really strengthens what we can offer to our families and the wider community.
