An intriguing past

Amazingly, King Charles I stayed on the site of Widey Court – where our school now stands – when Plymouth was under siege during the English Civil War. The oak trees on our grounds today are the same ones that King Charles would have seen during his time here back in the 1600s!

Adventure and Learning

We are proud to give Year 4 and Year 5 pupils the fantastic experience of residential trips. Visiting an adventure centre and a working farm, our children love the exciting new experiences these trips bring – and they learn new skills, develop teamwork and confidence along the way.

I have been a part of Widey Court since my very first year of teaching. With Widey being a large school, the opportunities for professional development are fantastic. Everyone is so helpful and supportive!

EYFS Phase Leader

Being a part of Widey Court Primary School is so wholesome & rewarding; it really is like having an extended family. Everybody is so friendly, warm & caring, & I go home every day with a full heart.

Staff member and ex-parent

Being a recent ‘newbie’ to the Widey team was the best decision ever made, as I feel like I have been accepted into a warm, kind and caring family. The environment when you enter the school is something you can’t explain; it’s like magic!

New Teacher

There are many joys about being a student at Widey Court- the staff, fellow students, the Widey buildings and the surroundings. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and show compassion and care in the work they do. We have an amazing outside space which is used on many occasions. Here at Widey Court, the students show respect and help others.

Year 6 Head Girl

Christmas in my industry is where people are clinging on for dear life, just looking forward to the turkey. Teachers seem to step into the next gear! You and your staff seem to be at every school play, Christmas carol concert and choir event. If the event itself is not out of hours, and most seem to be, then I am sure the endless planning certainly was. As a parent I have loved each event I have been to and they are super uplifting but it is plain to see all the hard work that goes in. Thanks to everyone at Widey, as a parent and as a governor, it is very much appreciated.
