Welcome to Gelston Primary School


Gelston Primary School serves the rural communities of Gelston and Rhonehouse.  The main school building was refurbished a few years ago and consists of two classrooms with capacity for 50 pupils altogether.  There is a portacabin on site and a large playground with a small garden area and a climbing frame.  We have a newly appointed outdoor classroom that was erected in March 2024.  We have a school kitchen which lies a few steps away from the main building and freshly prepared meals are cooked on site.  Pupils walk down to the Village Hall for PE lessons and assemblies.  Pupils can access Gelston Castle Estate for outdoor learning opportunities.
