Greystones Primary School, catering for the 4-11 age group, is situated approximately 2½ miles to the southwest of Sheffield city centre, in an established residential district of mainly owner occupied housing. Within the area are shopping and recreational facilities. Nearby is St Gabriel’s, the parish church of Greystones. We maintain and develop strong links with the local community.
Greystones Primary School now has three large, stone-built buildings. The Greystones Building dates back to 1904, the Tullibardine building circa 1920, whilst the new Dobbin building opened in January 2016.
In the autumn of 2014 building work began on site to provide new improved facilities for the school, including extra classrooms to accommodate the expansion of school to three form entry (90 children in each year group); giving us a total capacity of 630 children across the seven year groups.
The school office is located in the Greystones building, and can be accessed via the main entrance gates on Tullibardine Road. The Welcome desk and Foyer are accessible by ramp or steps.
Within the school grounds, we have picnic tables, climbing frames, a quiet area and Multi-Use Games Area, some of which have been funded by the Greystones Home-School Association. More information about the HSA can be found here.
The After School Club uses the school dining room and grounds and, since September 2016, is run by the school.
The local Pre-School moved into basement area of the Infant building in February 2006. This pre-school is independent of the school and has it's own management and trustee body. You can visit their website here.
The school is proud of its multi-cultural nature where differences are valued. The opinions of all groups associated with the school are regularly sought and respected. There is also liaison with outside professional agencies and other departments of Sheffield Children and Young Persons Directorate.
The education of the whole child is central to the school’s philosophy with a strong emphasis being placed on ‘enriching’ subjects. To this end there is a wide and varied Extra-Curricular programme which includes sports, arts, music and ICT activities.
