Frithville Primary School


Frithville Primary School is proud to be a member of the Horncastle Education Trust, along with our partner schools  Banovallum School, Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Huttoft Primary & Nursery School and New York Primary School.

Together we share the trust’s vision:

We believe that every student whatever their background has the right to flourish, to achieve and to succeed and everything undertaken by Horncastle Education Trust should have this ambition at its heart.

Frithville Primary School and New York Primary School, another small rural school just five miles away, are both part of the ‘Small Aspiring Schools’ Collaboration, which also includes Gipsey Bridge Academy, Spilsby Primary School, Bucknall Primary School, Eresby Special School, Kirkby on Bain Church of England Primary School and Mareham le Fen Church of England Primary School.


Originally the West Fen United District School Board, formed in 1879, opened our school under the name Frithville Board School in 1880. We became a council school alongside the Medlam Council School in 1903 until 1907 when a separate Board of Managers were appointed for each school.

In 1947 the school became known as the Frithville County School and senior pupils were transferred to Stickney CE School in 1949. The name Frithville Primary School has been used since September 1999.

The main part of the school is the original building and there are remnants of original features found throughout the school showing a wonderful heritage. Over the years, we have transformed and modernised parts of the school to accommodate our children and staff.
