It is my pleasure to welcome you to Geddington CofE Primary School; we are proud of our long history, and are honoured to continue serving the local community by ensuring that its youngest members receive the best possible education.
Jesus came to us so that we could experience “life in all its fullness” (John 10:10). As a church school we believe that means supporting every child to reach their God-given potential so that they can experience all the joy that life has to offer. To achieve this we deliver an engaging curriculum; create a learning environment centred on mental and physical wellbeing and teach the children to live the Christian values in all parts of their lives.
Our school values reflect what it takes to make a positive contribution to the world around us: caring for our fellow citizens; showing respect for others; taking responsibility for ourselves; finding joy in all parts of life and committing to excellence in all that we do. We believe that through embodying these values we are able to create well-rounded individuals who have a positive impact on the world around them.
We actively encourage parents to become involved in their children’s education. Our school is well-resourced with talented and committed staff, and when home and school work together as a school team, our children can achieve limitless things.
Please take the opportunity to visit us and experience the inspiring and positive atmosphere here - just call the office to make an appointment. I would be delighted to show you around.

We are a one form entry primary school and offer 28 places per year into our Reception class. We currently have just under 200 children on roll – a number that seems to creep up a little every year. We are very fortunate that, with the help of our brilliant Parents’ Association, we have seven well equipped classrooms and a magnificent school hall which is the centre of life in the building.
We have an experienced staff team who work very well together and have children achieve to a high standard over many years.
There is a Breakfast Club which runs from 7:50am every morning and after-school provision through to 4:45pm on most evenings.
We have very close ties with St Mary Magdalene Church and the vicar, Rev Gillian Gamble is a regular visitor to school as well as being one of our Governors. The school is a central part of village life and one of the high points of every year is our May Day celebration when we close the centre of the village and crown our May Queen.
