Welcome to Freethorpe Primary and Nursery School

A welcome message from Chris Aiken – the Executive Headteacher of The Together Federation

We are a friendly and caring school where children enjoy learning and strive to be ambitious and successful. We embrace new ideas and methods for learning, constantly reviewing our practice to ensure we give the best possible education to our children. Children achieve excellent results at Freethorpe and we are extremely proud of this.
We are part of The Together Federation with Cantley and Horning Primary Schools, meaning we share the same Headteacher and work together in a number of different ways to benefit all three schools.
I hope our website gives you all the information you need, if you have any questions please feel free to give us a call and we will be happy to help in any way we can.
Chris Aitken, Executive Headteacher.
