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.

Beatrice Smith , 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!

Children in Need 2019

Each year we mark Children in Need by doing something a little different! This year, the children brightened up the day by wearing yellow; the Juniors made posters and took part in the Big Morning Move with Joe Wicks and Pudsey and together we raised £113! Thank you!...

My daughter is now in Year 3 and she absolutely loves school! I am so happy with her progress, and I’m really impressed with the range of activities on offer. The caring, family feel of the school is one of its greatest assets.

My boys really enjoy school; they have great friends and a good relationship with the staff. I’ve been very impressed with the sports activities they get involved in with other Rushcliffe schools.
