Britannia Community Primary School is in the heart of Lancashire’s Rossendale Valley. It was opened in 1928 as an Infant and Junior School for the Britannia area of Bacup.
The school is set in approximately three acres of mainly grassed playing fields. The original post-Edwardian building has had several extensions and improvements over the years and now provides space for its 210 pupils to be taught in seven spacious, colourful and stimulating classrooms.
Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and computers, and the ICT suite is used by all pupils. At the heart of the school is a bright Resource Area, which provides additional work areas and a central hub for teachers and children.
Britannia offers Primary Education to children in the age range 4 years to 11 years with single form entry. At the end of Year 6 (when children reach the age of 11), pupils transfer to secondary education. The area has access to many secondary schools, many of which provide the highest level of education standards.
Central to the school’s outstanding success is a team of qualified and highly skilled staff who deliver a curriculum that is wide ranging and with real depth.
