About Southill Lower School

Southill Lower School is a good school (Ofsted 2021), which nurtures values, grows inspiration and raises aspirations.

We are a small, friendly school. We have an idyllic rural setting in grounds owned by the Whitbread estate in the beautiful village of Southill. Our Ofsted report says that “Classrooms and corridors are filled with Laughter”.

In May 2019, Southill Lower School federated with Derwent Primary School. Both schools are good schools (Ofsted 2018 & 2021). Derwent is a friendly, inclusive school with beautiful, extensive grounds located in a semi-rural environment in Henlow, approximately 10 minutes from Southill Lower School.
