Welcome to Starbank School
- Starbank Road site (B10 9LR) – this is the oldest and most established building where currently there is a large Nursery(all part-time) and classes from Reception up to and including Y4.By 2016 there will be classes from Nursery to Y6 on this site.
- Bierton Road site (B25 8PY) – this has undergone extensive refurbishment since we moved in two years ago. It is a Listed Building which was originally built as a school in the 1930s but closed in the 1980s and was due to be demolished until early in 2012 when Starbank was asked to take it over to provide extra places. A Nursery (part-time and full-time) opens in September 2014 and there will also be classes from Reception to Y5. By 2015 there will be classes from Nursery to Y6 on this site.
- Hob Moor Road site (B10 9BT) – this annex site has been used by Starbank for the past 20 years approximately. It combines a stand alone brick built building with a number of large well equipped demountable classrooms. As in recent years there are children from Y4 – Y6 on this site but additionally from September 2014 we have 120 Y7 children based in a new set of portacabins which include specialist facilities for science, food technology and art and design.
When the new build further up Hob Moor Road is completed it will cater for classes from Reception to Y6 in the primary part of the school and from Y7 to Y11 in the secondary part. By 2016 therefore Starbank will have Nursery places at Starbank Road and Bierton Road and will have primary places from Reception to Y6 on all three sites with 180 places available in total, 60 at each site. It will be our intention to try and ensure families can have all their primary age children on one site, usually the closest to where they live. All children from any of our primary sites will automatically be entitled to attend our secondary department on Hob Moor Road.
