Willow Wood Community Primary School is situated in the heart of residential Cheshire, in Wharton, Winsford.
We aim to create an open and welcoming learning community, where all voices are valued and listened to. We provide excellent teaching, guidance and support so our children can develop as happy, well balanced, caring individuals who can make good decisions for themselves and their world.
Willow Wood is set in spacious grounds equipped with a good range of outdoor facilities to support learning; outdoor classrooms; a wooden trim trail; play equipment, a pond, a woodland and even an outdoor ampitheatre created by the children which is perfect for rolling down!.
The indoor learning environment has a campus feel and consists of 3 buildings which have been named by the children as - the Snowflake Building, the Sunshine Building and the Rainbow Building. The classrooms are all generously proportioned, light and airy. There are two halls, an art studio, library areas and an IT suite - we are very fortunate to have so much space to carry out our fun, investigative approach to learning.
