Dream …Believe …Achieve

Enabling children to flourish and succeed


Welcome to Oakthorpe Primary School

We are a small, friendly and caring school situated in the village of Oakthorpe, Swadlincote and part of the Rise Multi Academy Trust.  We have around 100 amazing children who are well-behaved, thoughtful and work really hard! Together, all of our dedicated staff team, along with our supportive parents make our school a great place to learn with lots of fun along the way. To find out more about our Vision, Values and Aims’ click on this link. 

We are really lucky to have wonderful grounds with a pond wildlife area, a woodland wildlife area and a huge playing field. Although our postcode is Derbyshire we are actually a Leicestershire school. Click here to see where you can find us! We have a great ICT suite and interactive whiteboards in all our classrooms. We have a good sized school hall (complete with projector and screen) and all our meals are cooked on the school premises.
