Onchan School is a very special place to be.
Everyone who works here is immensely proud of what we are achieving each day but there is no-one more proud than I am to be a part of a hard working team, that is working together to make a difference to the education of the pupils who come here.
Our pupils are at the heart of everything that we do and we are delighted that so many incredibly positive comments are made about the self confidence, tolerance and positive behaviour of them all.
Onchan School is at the very centre of the community in which it stands. It is one of the biggest Primary Schools on the Island and there is always a tremendous amount going on! It really is an excellent place to be.
We are successfully fostering excellent relationships between home, school and our local community in a way that is beneficial for all.
Being at Onchan is all about celebrating so many things:
• High standards
• Working together
• Developing independence
• Understanding the significance of our place in the community and on the Island
• Celebrating an enjoyment of learning in an exciting, purposeful and creative way.
We are proud that we are successfully achieving these goals and our school is a “Simply Stunning” place to be!

School data - 2016/17
The following information provides a breakdown regarding levels of attainment in Years Two and Six at Onchan School for the academic year 2016-17.
In each case it provides a comparison with the island wide data that is available.
The data does not form a complete picture of achievement at our school which is measured by the individual progress a child makes and which is reported to you in terms of above/ below or expected progress in the End of Year Report and Parent’s Evening in the Spring term.
The data does not show the differences between a cohort nor the range of Additional Needs, EAL or pupils who have transferred into our school.
It is a snapshot of attainment by that group of children as required by DEC under their Reporting and Assessing arrangements.
The data also includes those children in the Seals Unit with profound learning and developmental difficulties.
We are happy to discuss any trends and welcome feedback.
