Irlam Primary School


  1. About the School

About our school

In 2015 Irlam Primary School proudly celebrated its Centenary. Whilst the curriculum, the buildings and the staff have changed over the years there is one thing that has remained constant. That is the fact that we are dedicated to providing a quality education for the children of Irlam and Cadishead. 

Our vision is 'Outstanding in all areas' and we are working tirelessly to ensure that this vision becomes a reality.

Have a look at the photographs below to see when the past met the present.

If you would like to join us for our future then please contact the school to discuss this. We look forward to hearing from you.


Another thing that hasn’t changed over the years is the help we have received from Hamilton Davies Trust (HDT). HDT is a local charity providing support to the communities of Irlam, Cadishead and Rixton-with-Glazebrook. Being based in Irlam, we have benefited from this support through the provision of grants which have enabled us to develop a playground, purchase library books, make improvements to our early year’s provision and also to purchase a replacement stage for our centenary year as well as other enhancements to the school.

 As well as providing grant funding for the school, HDT also works closely with Manchester United Foundation. The partnership provides our school, and all 9 local schools, with projects aimed at improving physical literacy, mentoring and leadership alongside sports provision. In addition, the partnership aims to positively affect achievement, attainment and attitude toward studies.
