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.

My daughter is now in Year 1 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.

Miss L Dickinson

Parent

Many people thought that going to a secondary school would be difficult for me as I am from a smaller primary school. However, the safe community feel and friendliness that Willoughby Primary School offers, has given me the confidence to make new friends and let my talent shine!
