About Us

Ambleside Primary is a state of the art school, built for 21st century education. As well as providing excellent facilities for children in Aspley, it is at the heart of a much wider regeneration in the area. It is an integral part of the newly developed campus, offering a full range of family facilities and support with a Sports Centre, Sure Start and a Community and Training centre. The school itself sits in extensive grounds, encircling a courtyard. It is bright and spacious, with large shared areas for practical work and an I.T. infrastructure that will be the envy of any school, for years to come

Come and join us at Ambleside and help us achieve our aims to Achieve, Be Proud, Suceed, Together.
