Warmingham CE Primary is a very special school which is situated in the beautiful village of Warmingham; nestled between Elworth, Sandbach, Middlewich and Crewe.

The school itself dates back to 1839 and has grown over the years to accommodate seventy-seven pupils. It was originally built to meet the needs of the local Parish of St Leonard's. It continues to do this in conjunction with the surrounding areas.

Our Christian values and family ethos underpin everything we do, ensuring that every member of our school community is able to 'let their light shine'.

We aim to provide our children with the very best education - an education they will remember; one which will foster a love for learning and develop a thirst for knowledge, as we nurture their intellectual, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development.

Our philosophy is rooted in the knowledge that children need to feel safe and happy in order to achieve their very best. If you would like to know more about our school, please do get in touch to arrange a suitable time for a tour of our school.
