Primary School

We are a happy, village school with a friendly, family atmosphere, where our pupils enjoy learning. After our last inspection, we were rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

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

Our staff is devoted to planning for their educational and social achievement and our aim is that pupils who come to Willoughby School will quickly feel at home and enjoy learning here.

Beatrice Smith , Head Teacher

We pride ourselves on setting the highest standards and expectations for our pupils whilst celebrating success of all kinds and encouraging in them a ‘Learning for Life’.

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!
