Welcome to Willoughby Primary School

We are a happy, village school with a friendly, family atmosphere.

Our aspiration is that all of our children will achieve success at Willoughby School, regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.

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.

Mr Alan Guilder, Head Teacher

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.

Please explore our site and get in touch if you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit – we would be delighted to show you around our School!
