Altarnun Primary is part of the Athena Learning Trust alongside Atlantic Academy, Bideford College, Egloskerry Primary, Launceston College and Launceston Primary School .

Altarnun Primary School is a small rural infant and junior school set on the fringes of Bodmin Moor, eight miles from the nearest town of Launceston.

Our teaching and support staff are committed to providing our children with the best education possible and making them feel valued, safe and happy to learn.

We became an academy in 2014 to further support our vision to become an outstanding school and enable our pupils to realise their full potential. We pride ourselves on being a happy and friendly school, where relationships between our staff and the children are very positive. We have high expectations of both effort and behaviour and we work hard with all children to help them succeed.

Our outdoor space is very large for the number of pupils and consists of two playgrounds, adventure trail, willow structures, football pitches and further open spaces.

Altarnun Pre-School is accommodated within our building and although it is independent from the school, we work very closely together to ensure a smooth transition for pupils to the school.

We have a close relationship with our community and we use many other features of the local area including Launceston Castle and our wonderful village as part of our planned topic work.
