Our School

The school was opened in August 1978 and is built upon Wigston’s ancient Thythorn Field. Our emblem represents the traditional ridge and furrow field with a medieval plough and the two steeples of the local parish churches. The school design is open plan on one level. It is divided into three main teaching areas; the 4+ unit, Key stage 1 (infants) and Key Stage 2 (juniors). In addition there is a working library, two withdrawal rooms, a resources room, clay/technology area, studio, hall and teaching kitchen.

Each area is well designed and equipped to teach the full range of the curriculum along with the other diverse activities associated with a stimulating learning environment.

The outdoor environment is a focus of an ongoing project involving children and parents. The conservation area in the grounds is developing well since the children first planted over 400 trees in 1989, and we now have a range of diverse habitats in which to study wildlife.

The large school field provides an excellent playing area in the summer, as well as being used for sports and social events. Fundraising events have provided the school with number of outdoor toys and new climbing equipment, and many items that enhance our wide and varied curriculum. The school is still undergoing extensive refurbishment and offers an attractive and comfortable environment for pupils, staff and visitors.
