Duchy of Lancaster Church of England School has been providing an education to children in Methwold and the surrounding area for over 160 years.
“A community school with a distinctive Christian character.”
Long before the government became involved in providing education for everyone in our country, the Church of England had a vision that it wanted every parish to have a school for the education of poor children. By 1900, there were 5,700 state-funded schools and 14,000 schools funded by the Church of England. Today, approximately a quarter of all primary schools have a Church of England foundation, through which they strive to provide the highest standard of education possible, in partnership with the state.
