A Warm Welcome

At Costock C of E Primary School, our teachers are dedicated to helping each child reach their full potential, both academically and personally.


We offer a wide range of extracurricular activities, including a range of sports, nature and gardening clubs to help our students explore their interests and develop their talents.
