Learning for Life – the Willoughby Way
“From the moment they start school, pupils feel special.” Ofsted 2021
Thank you for visiting Willoughby Primary School’s website. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you on behalf of the staff, governors and pupils.
Set in the undulating hills of Nottinghamshire, in the village of Willoughby on the Wolds, Willoughby Primary is one of the smallest schools in the country.
The advantage of this is that children and staff get to know each other well. Older children naturally interact with the younger children in a nurturing and supportive way, which is very special. This is reflected in some of the children’s comments:
“Because the school is small, everyone knows each other really well.” Ofsted 2021
“The best thing about the school is that we live together happily.” Ofsted 2021.
I am privileged to have the opportunity to lead alongside committed staff and governors to ensure that the pupils at Willoughby receive a wonderful experience at primary school to provide them with life-long happy memories, enable them to reach their full potential and inspire them for life-long learning – ‘Learning for Life.’
Please contact the school office to arrange a visit.
With best wishes,
Mrs Joanne Linnett
