Welcome to Shirley Community Nursery and Primary School. 

I hope that our website will give you an insight into our happy and successful school. Shirley School is fortunate to be situated in an area of Cambridgeshire that serves a rich and diverse community; our pupils come from a variety of backgrounds and many speak English as a second language. We are very proud to be the first school in the country to gain the Equalities Award.
“This is a good school”.
“Staff take very good care of the pupils and have the best interest of the pupils at heart.” Ofsted (January 2014)

In July 2011, we moved into brand new, purpose built accommodation which includes a wonderful library, food technology room, ICT suite, attractive outdoor learning spaces, community facilities and Children’s Centre.
Determined to Succeed
We want all our pupils to achieve their best both academically and socially. Alongside this we promote an ethos where every child is valued as an individual; this helps them to grow into caring and respectful young people who are able to get on well with each other and make a positive contribution to our community. 
Playing in the nursery We are proud of our school’s achievements so far and we look forward to the next exciting phase of our school’s development.
