WSWarmington School is a small school with a big heart set in the delightful Northamptonshire village of Warmington, in the north-east of the county, between the beautiful market town of Oundle and the A1(M).  We have five classes: Robins are our pre-school children who attend from 3 years and we make sure that they have lots of opportunities to work alongside the Hedgehogs to make moving up into the main school a happy and exciting time for them. Our Hedgehogs are 4 and 5 year olds, Foxes is for 5 to 7 year olds, Badgers for 7 to 9 year olds and Red Kites for 9 to 11 year olds.

Our School day begins at 8.50am. The children are registered before starting a morning of Numeracy and Literacy lessons. The whole school have morning break from 10.15-10.30am to separate the core lessons. Lunchtime begins at 12pm with afternoon registration at 1pm which signals the beginning of lessons in the wider curriculum: Science, Art, PE, RE, Computing, PSHE, History/Geography topics and Creative Mission. The pupils gather for a whole school assembly at 2.55pm and the school day ends at 3.15pm. 

Life inside the school is busy and engaging for the children and outside they can let off steam and learn team skills on a super pirate ship, a playhouse, tyre park, climbing wall and trim trails, as well as a playing field for sport and games. We also have an allotment where we grow vegetables and a wildlife area where we often see blue tits, chaffinches and blackbirds - and sometimes a green woodpecker comes to visit us, too!

What's special about our school - what do we do?

Ofsted in 2018 said that 'parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school. They said their children are happy, well cared for and make good progress.' The report also said that 'pupils are exceptionally well-behaved. They are kind and polite to one another and play happily together.; We are all very proud of our pupils and our wonderful staff.

We make sure that everyone has a full and rounded educational experience with us - Hedgehogs, Foxes, Badgers and Red Kites have weekly French Lessons. Our teacher Mme Kernick lets us taste French food. In the Summer we go swimming at Oundle Pool. We have a specialist PE teacher, Ms Ransom, who works with all the classes. At Warmington you can learn a musical instrument, usually violin, guitar or cornet. 

We also play a lot of sport. Warmington School is a member of the Oundle and Thrapston Sports Partnership and we regularly take part in cross country, basketball, football, tag rugby, cricket and athletics events. We also take part in tennis organised by Oundle Tennis Club and cricket organised by Oundle Cricket Club. We have been awarded the Gold Mark for the quality of our Sports provision which is a wonderful achievement for our school.

We have a very active Parents and Friends Association which organises many events for children, parents and friends. The big events each year are the Christmas Fair and Disco and the Summer Fair, where the children traditionally participate in Maypole Dancing.

We are part of a Unity with Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School and share lots of exciting events together including our activity weeks and residentials to the Frontier Centre, York and Govilon.

We hope you will take a few minutes to browse our website to find out more about our lovely school. Please make sure that you read our excellent Ofsted report from January 2018 where we were again judged as being a 'good' school. We are committed to ensuring that our school continues to flourish and develop, giving each and every pupil the chance to get the very most from their time with us so they are prepared for a happy, confident and successful life!
