About the School
The school, built in 1910, is situated in the heart of the old part of the village of Castle Donington. The traditional building has five classrooms on the ground floor, opening onto a central hall, and two classrooms on the first floor. Across the playground is a dining hall, kitchen and facilities used by the Breakfast and After School Club. All classrooms are equipped with computers and interactive whiteboards. There are also several areas within the school used for intervention groups.
The school has a playground to the rear which has a secret garden, climbing frame and slide and seating areas. There is also an outdoor area attached to the 4+ classroom. Although the school has no playing field we are allowed to use the fields at Castle Donington College and Moira Dale Park.
