Welcome to Duchy of Lancaster
I am proud to be the Executive Head of this partnership and to know Duchy School is blessed with a supportive community who help the school in so many ways. We aim to be a successful centre of learning excellence where children are not only stretched but have an enriched curriculum to enjoy.
We have fantastic children, parents, staff and governors, who are welcoming and make our school a fun place to explore and discover about ourselves and the world around us.
We are committed to meeting the needs of the individual and believe a strong partnership with our community is essential for each child to enjoy school and strive to do their best.
We have high expectations for each child and will work to help them reach their full potential. We help children to realise there is a huge world beyond Methwold full of lots of opportunity for them to experience and join in.
Our standards of behaviour are high and everyone is expected to show respect and courtesy to each other. We expect you to support us in our role to encourage children to be positive, caring members of society.
Our staff make their classrooms exciting and purposeful places to learn, and we recognise the important role you have in helping us develop and maintain positive attitudes to learning.
