Great Gidding C of E Primary School, Great Gidding is a very special school that thrives on a holistic approach to the needs of all children. Here you will discover a friendly, happy and stimulating learning environment for your child.


A brief history

Located beside the Church of St Michael, our school overlooks Main Street in the small rural village of Great Gidding. The school was founded by the Church of England in 1845 although there is evidence that there was a school in the village prior to this.

In 1944 control was passed to the Local Education Authority by an act of Parliament affecting all such schools but we continue to enjoy close links with the church and the Diocese of Ely. Our Priest-in-Charge often visits and leads collective worship regularly; we use the Parish Church for special services at times such as Harvest and Christmas.

Our Governing Body is representative of parents, staff, local community, local authority and the Church in line with national requirements. The school consists of modern, modular buildings and playgrounds but retains the use of the original Victorian school and gardens, which gives the school its uniqueness.
