About The Donington Cowley Endowed Primary School

Donington Cowley Endowed Primary School has ten classes. The school has approximately 268 children, their age ranges from 4-11 (R-Y6).  The school was originally built in the 1950’s. However, since then further classrooms have been added. The school has a separate music/art room, library and ICT suite. The extensive playing fields are used throughout the year by ourselves and the local junior football team. 

The school is local authority maintained and is a group two school that is growing, with the increased development and expansion of the community around us.  We benefit from highly positive relationships with the families that make up our school community and from the Cowley Education Schools Foundation.  The school is also a key stakeholder in community activity, including that of Matthew Flinders.
