Welcome to Asterdale Primary School    

Our Virtual School Tour!



It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of Asterdale Primary School.  We are a one form entry Primary School, situated in Spondon on the outskirts of Derby.

We care deeply about each and every child in the school, providing them with the nurture, care and challenge they all need to succeed.

Our school is fully accessible to wheelchair users.

We hope you enjoy looking around our school website. Should you require any paper copies of any information, please contact the school office where they will be available free of charge.
