Mr James Sherlock, Head Teacher
Geddington is a one-form entry school which means that we have a single class for each of the seven year groups; there are just under 200 children in the school altogether. We serve the villages of Geddington, Newton and Little Oakley although a third of our children come from Kettering and Corby. The school has existed in one form or another for over 220 years and we are proud to be adding to that legacy. We have strong links to our local community and particularly with St Mary Magdalene Church.
Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”. As a church school, we believe that means recognising that each child is unique in the gifts and talents that they have been given and giving them every opportunity to use and develop these to the full. It also means that we understand ‘life’ to be far more than what is contained within the curriculum – we wish our children to be reflective thinkers who take responsibility for their own conduct; who understand that we all have a duty to care to encourage and support one another and that we are part of a much wider, wonderfully diverse society which we can learn from, serve and contribute to.
We would be very happy to show you around. Please call the school office to book a time and we would be pleased to welcome you.
