Willoughby on the Wolds Primary School is a small, friendly village school in an attractive environment. Our numbers fluctuate around 40-50 pupils on roll.

Willoughby Primary School  has been rated as “Outstanding” by OFSTED Inspectors and is amongst the top performing Primary Schools in the County. In 2015, Willoughby was 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.

We pride ourselves on the fact that our school is a happy school with a friendly, family atmosphere. Small class sizes for much of the day ensure that children’s individual needs are catered for. We are confident that your child will both enjoy and benefit from his/her education at Willoughby School.

The school has good facilities, including three classrooms, one of which is a well resourced ICT area for the pupils. All classes have use of interactive whiteboards, which were installed as part of our ICT Vision plan.

Although we do not have a separate dining room we encourage children to try our excellent school meals that are cooked at Keyworth Primary and Nursery School. Weekly menus are available for children to choose from. Children who bring sandwiches to school, eat with the rest of the school.

We use the Village Hall for a wide range of activities, which include movement, drama, gymnastics and indoor games; we are also very lucky to enjoy full use of the wonderful Willoughby Community Park (a short walk away), which is used for sporting activities and as a recreational facility in fine weather.

At the end of Year 6, our children either transfer to South Wolds Community School or go on to one of the several excellent independent schools in the area.
