Ilsington School is currently closed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The emergency number for our school is 07908 018782.

Ilsington School is situated within the Dartmoor National Park, about two miles from Haytor Rocks. Ilsington itself is a picturesque rural village and the parish is the second largest in Devon.                                                                                                                                                         

In such a setting the children are encouraged to enjoy and respect their environment and we take every opportunity to involve them in educational activities concerning their local area. Our village school forms an important part of the local community, and benefits from these close links, for example as regular users of the village hall, playing fields and parish church. 


As our School is a Church School (VC) we have regular inspections of our 'distinctiveness and effectiveness' as a Church school. These inspections are known as SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools). 

We were delighted when in our most recent report ( May 2018) the school was rated as outstanding .
