St Michael's Church of England Primary School (more commonly known as St Michael's Primary School or St Michael's) is a school for children aged 4-11 in the village of Winterbourne, South Gloucestershire on the outskirts of Bristol, England. The current headmaster is Mr Adrian Vye.

The school was founded in 1813 by the well-known educational reformers Hannah More and William Wilberforce. The original school began in the upstairs of the local George and Dragon pub. Larger rooms were then provided in Bourne House, where the school remained until a permanent building was erected on Winterbourne's High Street. St Michael's present location on Linden Close was opened in 1970.

The well known author J. K. Rowling was taught at the school.
