Great Finborough Primary is a successful village Church school where we put great emphasis on ensuring all our pupils make the most progress possible in the vital skills of reading, writing and maths and as a result our school, when compared with the national average, has achieved above average standards in these three areas year on year.

Our curriculum is enriched with carefully planned educational visits and enriched learning opportunities. This was acknowledged by OFSTED (2017) in the following way. “The outstanding curriculum is enriched by an unusually wide range of different opportunities, activities and trips, culminating in an eight-day residential trip to the Outer Hebrides in Year 6. Enrichment activities include, for example, sailing, cricket, gymnastics and kayaking.”
