Evenlode was opened in 1969 as the first open-plan Primary School in South East Wales. The population of the school has risen dramatically in the last 30 years, from 240 in 1986 to the current 420. However the school building has had to change to accommodate more pupils and the original open-plan design has disappeared and made way for more conventional classrooms.
In September 2022 Evenlode Primary amalgamated with Bute Cottage Nursery School, taking the number on roll to 466 (full time equivalent).
Evenlode has a really experienced and dedicated staff, with a balance of teachers being new to the profession through to 25+ years experience.
