Welcome to Our School
Corsehill Primary School is a non-denominational school serving the Corsehill area of Kilwinning. The school is situated within the housing scheme on the Irvine side of Kilwinning. Visitors can locate the school by turning left off the Kilwinning – Irvine Road onto Fergushill Road and turning fourth left off Fergushill Road at the local shops, and then first left into McGavin Avenue.
The original building was built in 1959 with a semi open-plan infant wing being built in 1975. The single storey building is a brick built flat roofed structure comprising 12 classrooms and a variety of other facilities including a gymnasium/dining room, conference room, library and nurture room all of which provide bright attractive and spacious accommodation for staff and children. Our forward thinking staff have taken a traditionally built building and imaginatively created work spaces for our children that suit a 21st century educational needs, notably our Discovery Zone, Learning Zone and Play Zone. Outdoor facilities include a large outdoor classroom, a wonderful wildlife area and biodiversity pond with pallet pathways, a productive vegetable and herb garden and fruit orchard, a storytelling fit pit, a magical willow den, the Early Years Class garden, a beautiful decked area, astro turf and soft play area. The building is accessible to those with physical disabilities.
Corsehill has a working capacity of 304 and a current roll of 221 pupils and a Early Years class which is located within the school with a capacity of 80 pupils (40am / 40pm.) We have a very well resourced “Woodland Room” which caters for under threes who have been admitted through North Ayrshire Council’s referral system.
Corsehill Primary and Early Years Class aim to make our school an open, attractive, stimulating working environment where everyone is treated with respect, sensitivity, and equality and to extend this to our partnership with parents and the wider community.
We support the professional development of all staff through a continuous process of evaluation, review and training. We seek to achieve high standards of attainment in both learning and teaching by providing a broad, balanced, accessible curriculum suited to the needs of all our children in order that they may achieve their full potential.
We are proud to be working to become a rights respecting school
