Inspiring the Love of Learning
When pupils join Buxlow, they not only join a primary school, but a way of life. Buxlow is a small school with a big heart which achieves great results. It is a family school in which pupils are cared for, valued and educated to make progress and achieve their potential. Our goal is to inspire the Love of Learning in an environment where creativity, resilience, optimism, strength of character and wellbeing are nurtured.
Buxlow children benefit from gradual and integrated learning experiences which greatly assist them to achieve smooth, seamless transitions throughout the whole School. Buxlow's value laden environment enables children to feel confident, secure, resilient and optimistic and empowered to achieve their potential and prepare for a fulfilling life.
