Welcome to Linby!

Admission to our Primary School is open to everyone! We serve the communities of Hucknall, Linby, Papplewick and the surrounding area. We are a Church of England school, but welcome children and their families from all faiths and none. Linby children have a guaranteed place at National Academy, should they wish to take it.

Our school is unique; we offer a small family atmosphere where all the children are known, their gifts recognised and children valued for who they are.

With small year groups, each family has a close relationship with staff and each child knows every other by name. This means that once the children take their place at National Academy, they know a sea of familiar faces! Children at Linby achieve well, because any gaps in learning are identified and interventions personally tailored to support the children to help them to achieve the best outcomes they can.

But that is not all! With Breakfast and After School provision (beginning September 2023), the offer your child receives at Linby is varied and exciting!

This year, our additional offer has included; a whole school Pantomime visit, specialist training in Hockey and table tennis, KS2 choir performance at the Young Voices Concert at Sheffield Arena, a whole school Values Day, First Aid Training, weekly visits to Sherwood House Care Home, a whole school celebration of King Charles III Coronation, Quiz Club, Craft Club, Prayer Club, Resilience Champion Team, Team Sports Day, Family Sports evening, Family School Camp and trips to PGL, Safety Zone at The National Watersports Centre, The National Space Centre, Papplewick Pumping Station, Southwell Minster, Arc Cinema and Magna!
