A Welcome Message From Our Principal - Mrs Nicola Coupe


Mrs Nicola Coupe began working with Burbage Primary School as Executive Principal in April 2013 when we converted to Academy status. She was appointed as our Principal in November 2014.

She moved to Wiltshire with her son and husband in 2009 when she took up the Headship at Easton Royal Academy, now a partner primary academy in Excalibur Academies Trust. She had previously taught at North London Collegiate School - an 'all through' Independent Girls' School in North London where she was Director of Studies in the Junior School. She and her family are enjoying living in the countryside again after 20 years in London.

Welcome to the website of Burbage Primary School. We hope it gives you a glimpse of the way the school runs and what we stand for.

At Burbage, we pride ourselves on offering a friendly, caring and happy school environment where children learn with enjoyment and flourish as individuals. We provide an exciting enquiry-based curriculum which is adapted to suit the children’s interests.  We firmly believe that children should enjoy school but also be challenged to strive for success. 

The school is sited in the heart of the large village of Burbage which is ten minutes from Marlborough and Pewsey. We are an academy within Excalibur Academies Trust  and have close links with our partner schools within the trust as well as working with schools that are further afield.

We have six classrooms (four in our modern building and two  in our mobile).  We currently average 18 children per year group. We teach English and Maths in smaller teaching groups and have mixed-age classes for Creative Subjects. Our dedicated team of staff includes specialists in PE, Music and Science and we offer a fabulous range of after school clubs. 

The school boasts a fantastic playing field as well as a large playground, a quiet area, an environmental area and a trim trail designed by our School Council. We have also converted a quiet room in to a bespoke Library which we opened last Summer Term. It is a great resource for the school!

If you are looking for a school for your child, please come and visit so you can meet the team, see our vibrant classrooms, lovely grounds and facilities for yourselves. We look forward to meeting you!
