Our staff devote a great deal of our time to planning for the educational and social achievement of our children. Our hope is children who come to Willoughby School will quickly feel at home and enjoy learning here.

We have been rated as Outstanding by OFSTED Inspectors and in 2015, we were ranked number 1 in the Primary Schools League tables for Nottinghamshire.
We also have a 100% success rate for pupils who take entrance exams for independent schools in the area.
