Cherhill CofE (VA) Primary School was officially opened in May 1961.
It was built to replace the small village schools of Cherhill, Yatesbury, Calstone and Compton Bassett and to provide a school for the children of RAF personnel at the then RAF Compton Bassett. This continues to be our catchment area, and Lower Compton has been added.
The school is housed in a light and spacious building, set in extensive grassed and hard playing areas; situated at the foot of the downs with panoramic views of the hills and Cherhill White Horse. The three classes at the Eastern end of the building share a practical area equipped for Design Technology, Art work and cooking. At the heart of the building we have a large, well-equipped hall. We have a library and an ICT suite with 17 computers and a HD interactive screen. All classrooms have computers and HD interactive screens as well as Visualizers. We also have a class set of i-Pads.
