Our History

Our school was built in 1982. We are named after Mary Elton, a member of the Elton family of Clevedon Court. Mary was a Victorian benefactress who had a particular interest in the education of the children in Clevedon.

We educate boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 11. The total number of pupils is usually between 400 and 420. Each of our year groups has two parallel classes, with about 30 children in each.

Our school was originally built for 280 children, so we have grown significantly, with the Kikoboga building being completed in 2009 housing an additional 6 classrooms. We also have a School Library, opened in 1998, and a computer suite suitable for teaching a class of 30. We have a large School Hall.

The school has extensive grounds which provide excellent facilities for sport and environmental activities, as well as providing space for the children to take part in their own activities at supervised lunch and play times.
