Whittlebury CE Primary School is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England school set in the village of Whittlebury close to the market town of Towcester. The school was founded in 1863 to serve its local community and surrounding villages. Today the school has three classrooms educating children from the ages of three to eleven. As a Church of England school we enjoy strong links with the Church and Diocesan.
We offer a caring and nuturing environment where every child feels safe, special and valued. This results in all children wanting to do well at school. Every child is unique and huge emphasis is placed on the whole child to ensure that when children leave us, to enter their next stage in education, they are well rounded respective young people excited to learn and thrive in their future.
The distinctiveness of the school is visible as you enter the building and continues throughout with vibrant classrooms and communal spaces dedicated to the celebration of children’s achievements. This creates the impression of being in a special place.
Diocesan Inspection July 2015: It is evident from discussions with parents, governors, and the headteacher, and from observation of activities, that Christian values pervade the school. For instance in the kindness of the children towards each other and the absence of bullying.
We are extremely proud of our school and pupils. Our school is a happy place with endless opportunities for all pupils.
