The school in Culworth dates back to 1789 when Merial D’Anvers, the spinster daughter of a local prominent land-owning family, commissioned the building of the original School House which is still in use today.
The school has been extended over the years and now provides a stimulating environment for about 125 pupils. We consistently deliver very good SATS results with many children leaving Culworth to attend Chenderit Secondary School and nearby independent schools such as Warwick, Princethorpe and Northampton.
We support a thriving music culture with a school choir, orchestra and a wide selection of music lessons available. We also provide many additional sport activities and clubs, including football, drama, dance and cricket.
We ensure that our curriculum is taught creatively, using the latest technologies and we enjoy strong relationships with the villages, community and Church. Our school was recently judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS), which looks into how we operate as a Church of England School, our ethos and religious education.
The curriculum is taught through whole-school termly topics, which in recent years have included 'Robin Hood' and 'Ice Worlds'. Our approach engages and motivates children in their learning and has been recognised as best practice at teaching conferences.
The school has recently undergone major refurbishment and repair work to the Old School House, providing a new Library, teaching areas and Staff Room. A brand new Reception Classroom has been completed as well, providing a wonderful welcoming environment for our youngest pupils.
Culworth Primary School is now federated with Boddington Primary School, working together to provide a better education for the children of our communities.
Together we are also a part of the South Northamptonshire Church of England Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and the Local Collaborative Trust of the Primaries in the Chenderit cluster.
