Bishopsteignton Primary School

by | Dec 10, 2020 | Current and Planned Research Projects

In 2023 Bishopsteignton Primary School will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in its present building. Of course the school itself has been in existence for much longer and the building that is now the Community Centre and HUB was the home of the school for many years. We are intending to  trace the development of the school and the history of it in the former building. We hope to encourage the involvement of the present pupils, parents and staff of the Junior school. If you can contribute to the story of the school, or would be interested in researching the topic or presenting the project in a way that would encourage the participation of the students, please do let us know.
