Houghton Primary School is a small school set in beautiful grounds at the heart of a village close to the River Great Ouse. It has recently undergone a major re-development providing seven new classrooms, new cloakrooms and a superb atrium. An 'extended schools' facility providing new accommodation for the Phoenix Club (childcare) and the village pre-school.
Our aspiration is that our school community will reflect all that is best in society. To achieve this we promote positive behaviour and reward care and considerate acts.
We work in partnership with many people who share a common vision of the development of every child within a caring and supportive environment. Our school, together with all our educational partners, will strive to make the time you spend with us as enjoyable and fruitful as possible.
Please take a good look around our website - through the pages on this site we aim to give you a 'flavour' of our school. We hope that prospective families will come and visit to find out more. We hope that our current families will make this website their homepage and use it to keep up-to-date with all the latest news.
