Welcome to Astley St Stephen's Church of England Primary School.


Ofsted October 2016:

"This school continues to be good. Pupils learn well at this school and make good progress because of a strong and inclusive leadership team. The school provides a pleasant environment that encourages pupils to share their knowledge of history, geography and religious education alongside the core subjects."


Siams Inspection 2017:

St. Stephen's is an outstanding Church of England Primary School.

"Everyone involved at St Stephen’s is engaged in its mission ‘to be a school rooted and growing in Christian faith and committed to excellence’. Relationships are caring and supportive. Pupils say they feel safe and loved in school. Their behaviour and politeness are exemplary. This Christ-centred family friendly ethos is highly conducive to pupils’ learning." 


We are a small, family primary school who cares about the well being and education of every child.


Our whole team works to provide every child with the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential. We have a number of features which make our school very special:

  • A strong Christian ethos which promotes key values throughout school life.
  • Positive links with the church and clergy.
  • A unique curriculum combining the national objectives with themes which interest and engage our pupils and are based around our local area.
  • Recognised high quality outdoor learning provision in partnership with the John Muir trust.
  • Specialist music and language provision at Key Stage 2.
  • Four houses which give our children a team identity within school and opportunity for competition and collaboration.
  • Access to high quality sporting events within the local area.
  • A focus on each child as an individual with provision of intervention and challenge for each pupil in relation to their needs and talents.


Astley St. Stephen’s is a forward-looking school and we are always looking for opportunities to make our children’s experience of learning even better. There is a strong community feel to the school with a wonderful parents association, a dedicated and talented staff team, an effective and skilled Governing Body and enthusiastic and confident children. 


Astley St Stephen’s School has a lot to offer our children and we always keep them at the heart of everything we do. Thank you for visiting our website.
