At Little Harrowden, we are passionate about learning and aim for our children to grow as outstanding learners with the skills and confidence to take on whatever challenges the future may bring.

We provide a holistic education where importance is placed upon academic excellence as well as emotional, physical and ethical development.

Our dedicated team of teachers and support staff provide a caring and challenging environment in which children thrive. Children at Little Harrowden are happy and their behaviour is excellent.

We have around 208 children on roll aged 4-11, with one class in each year. We are a vibrant, forward-thinking school and retain a village-school ethos with a strong sense of community – something which the school has proudly achieved for over 350 years.
