Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to Guilsborough Church of England (Voluntary Aided) School's website.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us. We hope you will find the site interesting and informative, and will help you to gain an insight into our small, rural primary school.
Guilsborough Primary School dates back to a former Free Writing School founded in 1609. You can find out more about our past history elsewhere on this site. We are very proud that our school is a Church School, and we take our links with the local church and the Peterborough Diocese very seriously.
The school is a busy, happy school with hardworking staff who use a variety of teaching methods to make learning fun. We firmly believe that our school has a caring, family atmosphere where children can grow and develop both socially and intellectually drawing upon Christian values.
The School's ethos is summed up in our vision of "Building Brighter Futures". Our values are Christian Values, and are underpinned by the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. For more information about our Vision and the Christian Value for each term, please look under the 'Our School' section of the website.
We sincerely hope that your child will thrive at our school and that, as parents and carers, you will become fully involved in your child's education, and the life of the school.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at school if you wish to speak to me for any reason.
Dr Yvonne Watts
