Welcome to Cotmanhay Junior School.


The purpose of this website is to provide you with helpful information about our school’s philosophy, aims and organisation, though we encourage you to visit the school to experience this on a more personal basis.


We serve a large estate on the outskirts of Ilkeston and have a strong sense of community. We see the development of our children as a partnership between home and school, where we work together to ensure all children achieve their potential.


Warm, caring and trusting relationships are established between staff, pupils and parents/carers throughout the school. This helps give the children confidence as learners. The staff and governors provide very good role models for the pupils through shared values and support for one another.


Our engaging curriculum provides many opportunities for children to develop their skills and talents whatever their level of ability .


We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.
