Latest news - the name for our new school will be Sheerhatch Primary School!

Welcome to Willington Lower School

We are a small, caring school that offers many opportunities for the children joining us to reach their potential in all areas of school life.

At Willington Lower School we regard each child as an individual. We work hard and play hard at Willington. The children develop their numeracy and literacy skills in a variety of ways. We love the arts and use these as a vehicle to enhance the learning of basic skills.

We also use the world beyond the school buildings on a regular basis and take the children on many school visits and invite professionals from a variety of fields into the school.

We are now entering into a federation with Cople Lower School in order to best develop strong and sustainable Primary education for both villages.  To go directly to their website, please click on the following link :-

Visits to the school are welcome.  Miss Sharon Bateman and Mrs Cathy Dutton work in our school office and are happy to help with any queries. Please telephone 01234 838280 to arrange an appointment and we look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Please find below a link to the final Consultation report and  covering letter regarding proposed changes in line with Bedford Borough Council’s decision to support transition to a two tier education system in Bedford.
