Welcome to Starbank School

Starbank has for many years been a very popular and successful primary school. In response to demand for places we became an all-through school from September 2014 onwards. As part of this development a brand new building opened on Hob Moor Road (in September 2016).

This is a very exciting time for Starbank and for our community. We hope you will want to be part of this future.

Your child has great potential. Help them realise it by choosing Starbank.

Bierton Road


This has undergone extensive refurbishment since we moved in three years ago. It is a Listed Building which was originally built as a school in the 1930s but closed in the 1980s and was due to be demolished until early in 2012 when Starbank was asked to take it over to provide extra places. We have a Nursery (both Part-Time and Full-Time) and classes from Reception up to Year 6.

Starbank School is an All-Through School

Starbank School is an All-Through school that means that we accommodate pupils in both Primary and Secondary.

Starbank School has Nursery places at Starbank Road and Bierton Road and will have Primary places from Reception to Year 6 on all three sites with 180 places available in total, 60 at each site.

It will be our intention to try and ensure families can have all their primary age children on one site, usually the closest to where they live.

All children from any of our primary sites will automatically be entitled to attend our secondary department on Hob Moor Road.

Our secondary site hosts Year 7 to Year 11 (Currently populated up to Year 9)
