About Holy Apostles' Church of England Primary School

Holy Apostles’ Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School is situated in the very pleasant Battledown area of Charlton Kings – lying to the north east of Cheltenham – and serves the ecclesiastical parish of Holy Apostles’ and surrounding districts. The school has very strong links with Holy Apostles’ Church and enjoys regular visits from the clergy and the Open The Book team throughout the year.

Founded in 1873 to serve parishioners of Holy Apostles’ Church, the school moved to its present site in 1966 with the final phase of building reaching completion in 1992. The accommodation includes:

• 7 well-appointed and resourced classrooms;
• an outdoor classroom;
• a hall – used for assemblies, lunches, PE lessons and lettings;
• a Multi-media suite;
• a library/music room;
• school office, staff room, teachers’ PPA area and Head Teacher’s room.

Additionally, there is a very large playing field where, in the refurbished sports pavilion, Holy Apostles’ Playgroup and our After-School Club, are accommodated.

A one-form entry primary school with 211 pupils on roll, Holy Apostles’ is of average size and has low levels of deprivation and pupils with learning difficulties when compared with national averages. Most pupils are of White British heritage and are drawn mainly from the local community. The school’s Admission Policy includes provision for pupils from religious backgrounds alongside those from none. Holy Apostles’ is well-regarded and enjoys a good reputation in the locality. Every year the number of applications for pupil places far exceeds the Indicated Admission Number of 30.

The last school inspections were held in March 2020 (OfSTED), judged Good and November 2017 (SIAMS) judged the school to be Outstanding in all areas.
