A very warm welcome to the William Stukeley CE Primary School website.
Children come into school bringing a wealth of knowledge and understanding about the world around them. It is our aim to build on these skills and experiences to promote a willingness and enthusiasm to learn more. We believe learning is life long and occurs in an ever-changing environment. A creative curriculum, which also considers the personal and social elements of development together with academic standards that continue to rise, reflect the importance of educating the whole child in preparation for their changing world.
We have an enthusiastic, highly motivated staff, offering skilled teaching and a commitment to a caring, child-centred ethos; where education is seen as a partnership between home and school. We place a great deal of emphasis on this partnership, with a belief that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit.
It is hoped that this website will not only supply information, but reflect the sentiments above and give you a feel for the life and work of our school.

Acting Executive Head Teacher
The William Stukeley Church of England Primary School opened in September 1993 as a result of the reorganisation of primary education in Holbeach. Initially it opened in buildings previously occupied by Holbeach VC Infants’ School, but in September 1994 the school moved into its present new purpose built premises, on the site of the old Stukeley Hall. The school was named after the famous historian and antiquarian William Stukeley who built Stukeley Hall. The school is set in beautiful surroundings which were once the grounds of the hall and are second to none.
The school is built on a single floor with ten classrooms set around a central courtyard. It has a large school hall and extensive grounds including two large fields and three hard play areas. The school has an Early Years outside area which includes a sensory garden, road track, sand pit, den building, writing areas and climbing equipment.
Outside the main school building a quiet reflective area within the walled garden has been developed. This is a special place for children to spend time and think about their loved ones. We are also proud to offer a wooded area complete with an outside classroom, in which the children can take their learning outside. The children take part in a variety of activities including den building and making fires.
