Woolpit is an attractive village school, which boasts an idyllic location in the Suffolk countryside, close to Bury St Edmunds, but with very easy access to the A14. There are currently 123 pupils on our roll from Reception to Year 6 but we expect to grow rapidly over the next few years due to local housing developments.
