Netherseal St Peter's CE Primary School

We have the power to make a change and be the best that we can be


May I warmly welcome you to our school website.

Netherseal St.Peter's is a small Church of England primary school. We are very proud of our school in terms of its superb location, academic achievement and community spirit.  We lie in the heart of the National Forest, very close to the town of Swadlincote, South Derbyshire and are extremely close to the borders of Leicestershire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire. 

'I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to give you hope and a future' (Jer.29:11)

We pride ourselves on our strong Christian ethos, based on the teaching of the church. As such, we have an unconditional acceptance for all children as they are, absolute aspiration for them to be the best that they can be and an unflinching commitment to make that a reality. Staff know and have time for each child as an individual and we care for every member of our community, providing them with the tools, values and skills to navigate our ever-changing world.

Children and families of any faith or of no faith are equally welcome in our school.

We would love you to visit us to see for yourself! Please contact the office to arrange an appointment.

Huge congratulations to our cross country runners, Oscar, Miles, Bodhi, Louie and Blake, who competed against fifteen schools from all over the county yesterday.

It was extremely hot as approximately 30 children lined up for each race, but our pupils gave it everything and even though we took the smallest team, we were awarded with third place overall for Year 4 and third place overall for Year 5. We are so proud of their achievements and their ‘never give up’ attitudes. Special congratulations to Bodhi and Miles who both came second in their individual races!

Congratulations to our kwik cricket team who won their first competitive match at Ticknall Cricket Club  on Thursday!

Huge congratulations to Joshua who collected his trophy from Lincoln University on Tuesday for being the Year 3 winner in the national ‘Primary Engineer’ competition. The judges were particularly impressed with Joshua’s design of an automated machine which collects rubbish from the ocean, sorts it on board and takes it back to shore for further processing.

Well done to all of our children who took part. Out of over 28,000 entries we had seven pupils shortlisted as finalists, which is quite an achievement: Pippa, Oscar, Benjamin, Elliott, Freia, Gemma and Blake.
