Behaviour values: fair, respect, safe. This is how we do it here.

About Us

Willaston Primary School is situated to the north west of Douglas. It serves a large catchment area of mainly local authority housing with some relatively new owner-occupied properties. A major regeneration project is currently underway in the area. The school rolls averages around the 200 mark, organised into seven classes. Frees school meals, and the number of children on the special needs register is well above the Isle of Man average.

The school opened in 1955. The buildings are set in extensive grounds adjacent to University College Isle of Man (UCM).
