About Us

We are a small rural primary school in the South Kesteven area of Lincolnshire. 

The village of Ingoldsby is a rural community situated west of the A15 Lincoln to Peterborough road and east of the B1176 between Grantham and Corby Glen. The school is located between the villages of Ingoldsby and Lenton.

The school serves the villages of Ingoldsby, Lenton, Hanby, Keisby, Osgodby, Boothby Pagnall, Bitchfield, Westby and Bassingthorpe and admits children from outside the area.

Free transport to and from school is available to pupils living more than 2 miles away from the school and for whom Ingoldsby is the nearest primary school. Further details and application forms for free transport may be obtained from the Head Teacher.

Founded in 1877, Ingoldsby is a mixed Primary School, for children from 4 to 11 years old with a nursery facility on site at the school, taking children from their third birthday. Our nursery unit has a friendly and dedicated staff team that help children settle into school life and feel confident and ready for their transition to Reception. We work hard to make sure every child's experience is happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development care and learning needs.
