Thank you for taking the time to find out a little more about Clipston School. We are very proud of our children, our staff team and of everything that we achieve on behalf of the families we serve.
Our aim is to provide a wide range of learning opportunities within a safe, nurturing and happy environment in order to support all our children to grow into independent, caring and responsible members of society.
Within our unique, historic Grade II Listed building, we blend a rich heritage with research-based thinking and up to date technology to create a learning environment where every member of our school family can thrive. We set great store by traditional values, supporting children to develop a love of learning and a sense of wonder of the world around them. At the same time, we foster resilience, grit and determination in order to support children’s self-esteem, as they become life-long learners in 21st century Britain.
We are a Church School belonging to the Diocese of Peterborough, proudly celebrating over 350 years of educating children in an environment where our Christian Virtues provide a firm foundation upon which we can grow and flourish as human beings. Our school motto is Be Kind ~ Be Your Best ~ Be Happy.

If you would like to arrange a visit, please e-mail me via the school office or simply ring to make an appointment. We would be delighted to show you around our small, vibrant and happy school.

“This school continues to be good. Pupils enjoy school and are enthusiastic, keen to learn and willing to share their ideas."
"The teaching of phonics is very good. The most able pupils are fluent readers and read with expression. Parents of Reception children spoke positively about how well their children have settled into school. The school has a range of extra-curricular activities for pupils to participate in. Pupils get a good understanding of enterprise. Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. The majority of parents were very positive about the school and would recommend the school to other parents."

“The School’s Christian ethos contributes to the creation of a safe learning environment, supporting children on their journey towards becoming responsible members of society. The school is committed to the development of the whole child and clearly recognises their value as unique individuals.”
“Children are generous in their support for others who are less fortunate than they are by fundraising for a range of local, national and global charities. Staff and a range of visitors, including the rector from All Saints Church, lead worship in school on a regular basis.”
“The school’s Christian virtues instil in the children a sense of pride and support their development as functional members of society.”
"The headteacher consistently promotes a Christian vision for the school that impacts positively on the lives of the whole school community. The school’s motto: ‘Do to others as you would have them do to you,’ is practically expressed”.
