A warm welcome

Choosing the right school for your child is perhaps the most important decision any parent will have to make.

Widford Lodge is a unique and special learning environment. We have been instilling a love of learning in pupils between the ages of 2 ½ and 11 for over 80 years.

Today, we are proud to be an outstanding and high performing school, which offers a broad and balanced academic curriculum in an inspiring environment full of opportunities in which children can thrive.

We value childhood as a most important stage in life, a time when social and emotional development through friendship and play is as important as academic progress within the classroom. Each and every individual matters.  Our vision is simple – to enable all of our children to flourish in an inspiring and nurturing environment, fulfil their potential and achieve the very best they are capable of.

We promote traditional standards and values; caring for others, good manners, honesty, integrity and respect. Our pupils are encouraged to support each other, creating lasting friendships and work together – this is at the heart of everything we do.  We are a Forest School and each pupil from Pre School to Year 6 takes part in an activity every half term, enabling them to enjoy the stimulation of the outdoors and experience an increase in their self belief, confidence, communication and problem solving skills.

Whether it’s working hard in the classroom, playing for their team or building fires in the woods, we strive to create rich experiences and memories.

I hope our website gives you a sense of what Widford Lodge has to offer your child and inspires you to find out more.  Please come and explore our school and see how our children learn, grow in independence and become well rounded and resilient young people ready for the challenges and opportunities their lives will bring.

I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
