Indian Queens Primary School
We are a large, mixed-gender school in the centre of Indian Queens village. The school has extensive grounds providing plenty of space for sports, play and outdoor learning - particularly in our large, purpose-built outdoor learning space equipped with a dedicated classroom.
Inside the building, there are stimulating, well-resourced classrooms, with current technology and a wealth of artwork reflecting our aspirational and creative curriculum. The nursery has a highly skilled team of staff led by the lead teacher.
We are proud of our friendly, highly skilled and dedicated staff. All staff place a high priority on the welfare, social development and, most importantly, happiness of the children regardless of age, ability or background. We aim to ensure that our children are equipped with the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will help them succeed in life. Our pupils come first and are encouraged to develop their imagination, communication skills and capacity to learn. We are very proud of them.
Indian Queens is part of the Aspire Academy Trust, a multi-academy trust of 31 primary schools in Cornwall who have joined together in a unique and exciting partnership that will ensure better provision, richer resources and higher standards for our pupils.
