About Dovecote Primary School

Dovecote Primary School first opened it's doors in September 2005. It was created from the amalgamation of 3 existing schools on the same campus - Brooksby, Brinkhill and Greencroft.

We currently have 485 pupils on role aged 3-11. There are two classes in every year group and a 120 place nursery (60 morning places and 60 afternoon places).  50% of the pupils receive pupil premium funding.

You can find out details of our school curriculum on the curriculum page. At Dovecote, pupils also study Spanish and Philosophy. Years 4,5 & 6 are involved in the In Harmony project, one of only 10 schools in the country, which sees the pupils and staff having 2 -3 hours of professional music tuition a week. We are a brass school focussing on trumpet and trombone. We also have a dedicated Space for Sport and Art.
