Where children learn, achieve and enjoy success

On behalf of the children, parents, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Old Heath Community Primary School and to our website. Our school is located on the outskirts of Colchester town centre at the junction of Old Heath and Abbots Road (CO2 8DD).

The term is now in full swing, Early Years are in full time and have settled down really well. So unbelievably it is time to start organising ‘Prospective Parents Visits’ for Early Years September 2019!
