Welcome to The Erme Primary School


A very warm welcome to our school’s website.

We can be found in Station Road in the centre of Ivybridge and have approximately 120 children on roll.
The Erme Primary School is the oldest of the schools in Ivybridge, built in 1856, with new buildings added in 2005. We combine the old with the new to create a family feel to our warm and friendly school.
