About Foston School

The school is situated on the edge of Thornton-le-Clay, close to the village of Foston.   It was built in 1844, on land close to the old rectory for Foston Church.  The building was modernised in 1988. An outbuilding was converted into a new classroom in 2000.

We are a small friendly school with high aims for all our children.  We enjoy a close relationship with Foston Church and Thornton and Foston Methodist Chapel, our parents and the wider community. We are federated with Terrington CE VA Primary School who share the same headteacher and governing body. This link provides excellent opportunities to make friends, take part in joint events and for staff to work together.

For over 150 years, this very special village school at the foot of the Howardian Hills has offered a unique and individual education to generations of families. Foston School now provides a stimulating 21st century education for all its children in a secure and caring environment. Its small classes promote creativity, imagination and fun. The friendly and approachable staff encourage parental involvement, and our children learn to show a pride in themselves and their achievements. There is exceptional ICT provision, with interactive whiteboards and laptops in both classes. We currently take children from nursery class to Year 6 (3 - 11 years).
