Welcome to Woolaston Primary School

Set alongside the Severn Estuary on the edge of the beautiful Forest of Dean, Woolaston Primary School offers an OUTSTANDING start to school life.

They also benefit from new buildings and a spacious site in a country setting. If you wish to visit please make an appointment and we will look forward to seeing you." Ros Escott, Headteacher.
