Warboys Primary School is a thriving school of 277 pupils in 11 classes over three ‘phases’. We take great pride in the fact that our school is a community school, and as such, educational benefits and facilities are made available to the many communities within the village of Warboys. The staff and governors work hard to ensure that Warboys School plays an active part in the life of the thriving village, offering its premises for the education of adults as well as the children.
Warboys is located within a triangle of larger towns and cities. Huntingdon and St Ives are less than 10 miles away with Cambridge and Peterborough within 20 miles. There are good road and rail links for travel throughout the county and direct links to London. Warboys is on the edge of the Fens and therefore our catchment area is from village and rural locations with some children arriving by bus from Warboys Fen, Old Hurst and Woodhurst.
Our core purpose is to teach and encourage children to achieve their best and strive to become confident, enthusiastic and independent learners. We aim for excellence and enjoyment and to nurture the development of the whole child within our caring village school.
We have one key value of RESPECT – Respect yourself, Respect others, and Respect Property. To support this our PSHCE and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) programmes of work are also planned to encompass the other Olympic values of:-
• Courage and Determination
