Welcome to The Minster C.E. Primary School

Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope that the information provided will help you to gain an understanding of how the school is organised and of our Christian values and ethos.

I am proud to be Headteacher of this wonderful school. The Minster C.E. Primary School is a happy and vibrant school where we aim to provide an excellent education for all pupils.  We have a friendly, committed and caring staff, all of whom endeavour to provide the best educational experiences and a wide range of exciting opportunities for every child at our school.

Our children are happy children, who enjoy coming to school and being part of The Minster family.  We strive to ensure that the children experience success in a nurturing and inclusive environment, to help the children understand that they make a positive difference to the world in which we all live, and to have high hopes and ambitions for themselves and for other people.

Working together in partnership with parents, carers and the local community, we work hard to provide our children with the best possible chances, and to be rightly proud of themselves and their efforts as special, unique individuals.

With very best wishes,

Mr James Hobbs

Our Mission Statement


mission statement 1IMG-0080

Minster School is in Emwell Street, at the western end of the town with a catchment area that includes the village of Upton Scudamore. At present an average of about 219 children attend the school, coming from all areas of Warminster.

The school stands in a lovely garden setting in an elevated position looking over the town. The main building, dating from 1882, contains four classrooms for years 4, 5 and 6, a number of group working rooms and the school library.  Reception and years 1,2 and 3 work in a brand new building (opened in February 2016). The main entrance to the school and offices are also in this building. We have a stand-alone superb activities hall which provides fantastic opportunities for physical education and drama, and is also used by the community.

The grounds comprise of a playing field with many well-established trees, ornamental gardens and a very old weeping ash which forms the backdrop to the playground. We are currently developing outdoor classrooms for Reception/year 1,  Year 2/3 and a key stage 2 learning area.

The school is a voluntary-controlled Church of England school, with close links with the Minster Church. There is a strong ethos of caring and children are taught to respect and care for each other and to follow an agreed code of values and behaviour. The Minster School is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and has robust child protection procedures.  The school was recognised as a ‘good’ school by Ofsted in September 2018 and 'Excellent' by SIAMs in November 2022.
