Aldborough Primary School

Aldborough Primary School is a successful, lively and creative place which benefits from having excellent staff, happy hardworking children and lots of parental support. Ours is a purpose built, modern school with a wide range of facilities. It is set in extensive and beautiful grounds and is the ideal setting for a child’s early, and vital, years in education. It has the ‘best of both worlds’, being a rural primary school with reasonably sized classes and a caring, family atmosphere, but also, with seven teachers and a strong team of classroom assistants, sufficient staff and expertise to cope with the demands of the National Curriculum.
