Disley Primary School is part of The TRUE Learning Partnership. Originally founded by both Poynton High School and Lostock Hall Primary School in December 2018, we now encompass Disley Primary School, Glossopdale School and Hague Bar Primary School, each at various stages of development within our Trust

Karen Tomlinson, Chair of the board of Trustees, explains “Our vision is a community based, values focussed, learning organisation that meets the needs of all its members so that all will achieve. We will serve our communities with an unswerving commitment to ensure every student achieves their goals, whatever their circumstances.

In keeping our vision, values and principles at the forefront of all that we do, by working in partnership we increase the opportunities for staff, students and the wider community across our schools through training and sharing good practice; sharing systems and joining resources; sharing success and celebrating school achievements; and ultimately improving our schools and communities. “

Disley Primary School is based in a large, unique building which blends the best of both modern and traditional facilities. The original part of the school was built in 1911 and was adapted and remodelled in 1974, and again in 2015 and 2017.

There are a combination of traditional classrooms and more open, shared teaching areas. We currently have 9 classes, providing education for children aged 4 to 11. The Disley Under 5’s Playgroup is open each day, based in part of the school buildings.

Disley Primary School is fortunate to be situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park. The beautiful setting of Lyme Park is only minutes away and the children benefit from being able to access the many facilities offered by this National Trust property. We are also within easy reach of the Derbyshire Dales and Cheshire Plains.
